Buskist, Connie; Hogan, Jan
Journal of Effective Teaching, v10 n1 p51-56 2010
Student evaluations of faculty are used in most universities to determine teaching effectiveness and inform decisions about tenure, promotion, pay raises, and awards. For novice and experienced faculty, course evaluations can be intimidating. Learning how to approach course evaluation results systematically can help prevent faculty members from becoming overwhelmed by negative feedback and lead to better teaching. This paper offers suggestions on making sense of course evaluation data and using them to inform future practice.
