Digging Deeper into End-of-Course Ratings
I worry that we’re missing some of what we can learn from end-of-course ratings. I know I was on this topic in another recent column, but student evaluations are ubiquitous—used by virtually every institution and completed by students in pretty much every course. And what have we to show for this endeavor? Better teaching? More learning? You’d be hard-pressed to find broad-based support for either of those outcomes.
