Uses and Misuses of Student Evaluations of Teaching Effectiveness.
Simpson, Ronald D.
Innovative Higher Education, v20 n1 p3-5 Fall 1995
While student evaluations of teaching performance can provide useful feedback on faculty, particularly on dimensions of course delivery, there are serious limitations. Bias and distrust are often overlooked in interpreting student ratings. An inappropriate use is in rank-ordering faculty in a department. Student evaluation data must be integrated with other sources of information on teaching quality. (MSE)
