Uses and Misuses of Student Opinion Surveys in Eight Australian Universities.
Bedggood, Rowan E.; Pollard, Robin J.
Australian Journal of Education, v43 n2 p129-56 Aug 1999
Critically examines use of student opinion surveys (SOSs) at eight Australian universities. Finds that current SOSs are neither designed nor structured according to sound questionnaire technique and, used as part of a teaching evaluation system, they have serious flaws. Deficiencies include their use as the sole measure of teaching effectiveness and a lack of testing for reliability and validity. (Author/DB)
