Viewpoint: Student Evaluation of Instruction.
Kleiner, Brian
Journal of European Industrial Training, v13 n6 p16-17 1989
Student evaluation of instructors is less a valid way of measuring teaching effectiveness than a measure of student satisfaction or instructor popularity. Factors that increase student ratings--nonthreatening environment, less rigorous objectives or testing, entertaining classes--may detract from quality of student learning, whereas challenging and imaginative teaching may contribute to excellence but damage instructor evaluations.
