Summary of research on student evaluations
Nice summary of research and issues regarding student evaluations. Of particular interest are the correllations between superficial attributes and end of semester scores.
I’ve become interested in student evaluation partially out of my interest in the effects of the consumerization of HE. It’s at least a little bit interesting that the evaluation we’ve chosen as the primary teaching quality review is a customer satisfaction survey, and that the design of the evaluation is not evidence-based.
