The Validity of Student Course Evaluations: An Eternal Debate?
Gravestock, Pamela; Greenleaf, Emily; Boggs, Andrew M.
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v2 p152-158 2009
Student evaluation of courses and teaching at universities remains a highly contentious and divisive topic. Emotions and anecdotal evidence can overrule conclusions drawn from research on the validity and design of course evaluations. However, even amongst researchers, there is significant disagreement on the efficacy of course and teaching evaluations. This paper explores this ongoing dialogue through the medium of a parliamentary debate drawing from the breadth of current research on course evaluations.
