Effective Evaluation of Teaching: A Guide for Faculty and Administrators
Student evaluations of teaching offer valuable information to teachers who want to improve their teaching. Specifically, formative student evaluations collected prior to the end of a course allow teachers to adjust teaching practices and potentially enhance learning. In this chapter, we discuss several characteristics of teaching evaluations, including content, timing, format, and ways to utilize evaluations effectively.
