Abstract

Current practice is to administer end-of-course student evaluations and to use the results as part of a faculty member’s annual teaching performance evaluation. Since the administration collects the data it ought to use it to help faculty improve their course evaluation scores. This may seem self-defeating but satisfied students not only rate the professor higher but likely rate the program and the university higher. In this era of external and public rankings of programs, this is important. Factor analysis can help administrators analyze student course evaluations and identify problem areas that can then be the targeted for faculty development programs and workshops.
