Student Evaluations of Advising: Moving beyond the Mean
Hester, Eva Jackson
College Teaching, v56 n1 p35-38 Win 2008
Student evaluations of advising (SEA) are often limited to student ratings of the faculty member's advising skills. As with teaching evaluations, ratings of SEA may not be the best reflection of the advisor's performance. In this study, the author analyzed SEA to determine the relationship between student characteristics and evaluation items. Results suggest both positive and negative relationships between student characteristics and evaluation items that are traditionally thought to reflect good advising. The author describes an alternate approach to analyzing SEA and offers suggestions for improving SEA. (Contains 3 tables.)
