Using Global Student Rating Items for Summative Evaluation.
Cashin, William E.; Downey, Ronald G.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v84 n4 p563-72 Dec 1992
The usefulness of global items in predicting weighted-composite evaluations of teaching was evaluated with a sample of 17,183 classes from 105 institutions. Results suggest that, because global items account for a substantial amount of variance, a short evaluation form could capture much of the information needed for summative evaluation. (SLD)
