Cisneros-Cohernour, Edith J.; Stake, Robert E.
Online Submission, Revista Iberoamericana de Evaluacion Educativa v5 n2 p40-51 2012
This study portrays how a male instructor, his peers, and the department head used feedback from student ratings. A case study approach was employed to provide a holistic mode of inquiry that would be consonant with the exploration of issues addressed by the study. The method selected provided understanding of the process and events taking place and the complexities of the context under which the evaluation was conducted (Patton, 1980). The case study was organized around main questions or issues (Stake et al, 1995). The study identified critical validity issues when using student ratings results for improving the quality of college teaching. (Contains 3 footnotes.)
