Use of Student Ratings in Evaluation of College Teaching. Final Report.
McKeachie, W. J.; Lin, Y. G.
Student ratings have been used for three major purposes--in each case by a different group: (1) to assist teachers to improve their teaching; (2) to aid administrative decisions with respect to promotions or salary increases of teachers; and (3) to provide descriptions of course and teachers for students choosing to enroll in courses or sections of courses. The three studies described in this report relate to the first two of these purposes: using student ratings to improve teaching; an experimental investigation of factors affecting university promotion decisions; and do discrepancies between student ratings, teacher expectations, and teacher ideals result in changes in teacher behavior? For each of the studies, the hypothesis, method, procedures and results are indicated. (MJM)
