Cunningham, Caitlin M.; White, Theresa L. – Innovations in Education and Teaching International, 2022
Open-ended qualitative questions aid in participatory evaluation and are alternatives to the typical student evaluation of teaching forms. One method of qualitative evaluation consists of three prompts that ask students to comment on the aspects of the course that they feel the instructor should "Stop," "Start," and…

Valencia, Edgar – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2022
How do we know if a faculty teaching evaluation is biased? "Biasing factors" studies are an influential source of evidence for arguing about biased teaching evaluations. These studies examine existing evaluation data and compare the results by gender, race, or ethnicity, interpreting a significant difference between subgroups as evidence…

Allred, Anthony T.; King, Skyler; Amos, Clinton – Journal of Education for Business, 2022
Using student evaluations of teaching (SET) to measure teaching effectiveness is controversial. This study explores the effects of memorizing student names on SET ratings and uses the halo effect as a theoretical foundation for the hypothesized outcome. Past research has suggested that tactics that connote flattery facilitate a halo effect, which…

Suárez Monzón, Noemí; Gómez Suárez, Vanessa; Lara Paredes, Diego Gudberto – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2022
Previous studies have identified a positive relationship between students' perceptions of student evaluations of teaching (SET) and the grades that students provide in SET, controlling for other bias factors. The research by Spooren and Christiaens in 2017 at the University of Antwerp supported this finding. In this study, the methodology used by…

Clayson, Dennis – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
For several decades research into the student evaluation of teaching has periodically found an association between how well students like an instructor and the evaluations. The association has been largely ignored, being seen as an indicator of bias, or as a statistical or procedural artifact. However, these interpretations may be obscuring a more…

Kreitzer, Rebecca J.; Sweet-Cushman, Jennie – Journal of Academic Ethics, 2022
Student evaluations of teaching are ubiquitous in the academe as a metric for assessing teaching and frequently used in critical personnel decisions. Yet, there is ample evidence documenting both measurement and equity bias in these assessments. Student Evaluations of Teaching (SETs) have low or no correlation with learning. Furthermore, scholars…

Holme, Thomas A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2021
The end of the semester has any number of regular milestones for teachers, among them the receipt of student evaluations of teaching. Particularly for those who teach large course sections, the anticipated experience of reading evaluations is often bemusement. Frequently, there are significant numbers of student comments on both "sides"…

Cook, Caryn; Jones, Joanna; Al-Twal, Arwa – Journal of Further and Higher Education, 2022
In a super-saturated world of academia, the real power has slowly moved from academics' ownership of their own means of production to a more managerial ethos, with all the accompanying control systems, surveillance, bureaucracy, performance audits and judgements that that entails. Student evaluation of teaching (SET) has become a significant…

Lipsey, Nikolette; Shepperd, James – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2021
Student evaluations of teaching (SETs) can provide valuable assessment information. However, online administration of SETs has corresponded with lower SET completion rates. We examined perceptions of strategies for increasing SET completion rates and the effect of offering psychological prompts (completion goals, reminders, progress feedback) and…

He, Yankun; Xiao, Kenan; Shi, Yuewei – American Association for Adult and Continuing Education, 2021
Sentiment analysis (SA) is the process of identifying and classifying users' opinion from a piece of text into different sentiments. Student's evaluation of teaching is one of the common and necessary measures to assess the teaching quality of course instructors in a college setting. Traditionally, student evaluations are administered towards the…

Courey, Karyssa A.; Lee, Michael D. – AERA Open, 2021
Student evaluations of teaching are widely used to assess instructors and courses. Using a model-based approach and Bayesian methods, we examine how the direction of the scale, labels on scales, and the number of options affect the ratings. We conduct a within-participants experiment in which respondents evaluate instructors and lectures using…

Adams, Sophie; Bekker, Sheree; Fan, Yanan; Gordon, Tess; Shepherd, Laura J.; Slavich, Eve; Waters, David – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2022
A significant body of work problematises the assumption that student evaluations of teaching (SET) actually measure teaching quality. This is concerning, given that SET are increasingly relied upon not only to evaluate candidates for employment (so job acquisition is influenced by flawed data) but also to inform performance metrics for those in…

Cannon, Edmund; Cipriani, Giam Pietro – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Student evaluations of teaching may be subject to halo effects, where answers to one question are contaminated by answers to the other questions. Quantifying halo effects is difficult since correlation between answers may be due to underlying correlation of the items being tested. We use a novel identification procedure to test for a halo effect…

Borch, Iris; Sandvoll, Ragnhild; Risør, Torsten – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2022
Many documents are produced in evaluation processes; documentation of student evaluation can therefore be time-consuming. Nevertheless, we have little knowledge about how these documents are used. This paper is based upon analysis of documents that direct and report on internal student evaluation practice at a Norwegian university. Interviews with…

Howard, Jeffrey N. – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2022
The Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) instrument provides insight for instructors and administrators alike, often touting high response-rates to endorse their validity and reliability. However, response-rate alone omits consideration for "adequate quantity of 'observational sampling opportunity' (OSO) data points" (e.g., high student…
