Student Evaluation of Teaching. Presentations at a Conference.
Pittsburgh Univ., PA. Inst. for Higher Education.
This pamphlet presents two articles on student evaluation of instruction. The first article, "Research on Student Ratings of Teaching" by W. J. McKeachie, deals primarily with the reactions to his article in a recent AAUP Bulletin where he argued that systematic methods of collecting student evaluation of instruction should be used by faculty committees in evaluating teaching effectiveness. McKeachie thinks that the ultimate purpose of evaluating teaching is to improve learning, and that evaluation of either students or teachers should be based solely on learning. The second article, "Student Rating of Teaching, Some Questionable Assumptions" by George L. Fahey, examines some of the assumptions that are made in evaluating teaching effectiveness by means of student ratings and what these assumptions imply. (AF)
