Attractiveness, Easiness and Other Issues: Student Evaluations of Professors on
Felton, James; Koper, Peter T.; Mitchell, John; Stinson, Michael
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v33 n1 p45-61 Feb 2008
Felton et al. (2004) reported that web-based student evaluations of teaching (SET) demonstrated a student preference for course easiness and instructor sexiness. This study explores these same relationships with a larger and improved database. Results indicate even stronger relationships than previously reported. In addition, this study demonstrates significant cultural differences by institution and discipline in the relationships between Quality, Easiness, and "Hotness" in web-based SET. (Contains 6 tables and 5 figures.)
