Flunking the Test: The Dismal Record of Student Evaluations.
Trout, Paul
Academe, v86 n4 p58-61 Jul-Aug 2000
This article decries the heavy use of student evaluations in decisions about faculty retention, tenure, and promotion. It suggests these numerical evaluations are actually consumer satisfaction surveys, have not been validated, encourage dumbed-down education, and are not useful to teachers seeking to improve instruction.
