Age and Teaching Performance.
Kinney, Daniel P.; Smith, Sharon P.
Journal of Higher Education, v63 n3 p282-302 May-Jun 1992
A study examined the relationship between student evaluations of teaching effectiveness, age of faculty, and timing of retirement among tenured faculty. Results suggest a significant but small impact of age, varying by discipline. Uncapping of mandatory retirement appears to raise no major concerns for dramatic deterioration in teaching effectiveness in an aging professoriate. (Author/MSE)
