19 LITERATURE REVIEW If one accepts the premise that the major goal of an educational institution is to promote positive changes in students, then we must look to students for feedback when we are evaluating our efforts to achieve that goal (2). Student evaluation of teachers is probably the most common form of summative teacher evaluation in our colleges and schools of veterinary medicine. Students can provide valid evaluative information in four areas (3): 1. Information about teaching methods --they know what works. 2. Fairness of the faculty member in the evaluation/teaching process--students talk to each other and have a good sense of fairness. 3. Faculty interest in the student. 4. Faculty interest in the content of a course or subject --students like enthusiasm! Others have argued that students are not a good source of teacher evaluations, but many of the objections are not supported by published data (2, 4-7). We suggest here that students are also an excellent source of formative evaluation for improvement of "attitudinal and motivational goals in education" (2). The formative evaluation of faculty by students is more likely to be successful if facilitated by experienced faculty (3). Summative and perhaps formative evaluation of teachers, teaching methods, or courses usually occurs at the end of courses when there is little opportunity for students to see or reap benefits from their comments. Also at this time, teachers cannot immediately implement recommended changes. Formative evaluations should occur earlier while there is time to change (4). What Research Tells Us About Course Evaluations There has been a great deal of debate concerning factors that affect students evaluation of an instructor or a course. Research studies have produced mixed conclusions. Raoul Arreola, in Developing a Comprehensive Faculty Evaluation System (1995), offers the following summary: All this research points out that many commonly held beliefs concerning student ratings are, on the whole, myths or misconceptions. Faculty cannot buy good ratings by giving easy grades. Students do not generally rate faculty lower in classes taught early in the morning or right after lunch. Teaching a small class does not automatically guarantee high student ratings, nor does teaching a large class automatically guarantee low ratings. However, freshman students do tend to rate faculty more harshly than do sophomores, sophomores tend to rate more harshly than juniors, and so on, with graduate students tending to rate faculty most generously. Also, students in required courses tend to rate their instructors more harshly than students in elective courses. It is interesting to note that most large, required courses tend to be offered early in the curriculum of a college. Thus, most of the large required courses may be offered in the freshman and sophomore years, just the time when students tend to rate their teachers most harshly. It would be easy to conclude from personal experience with such courses that the problem lies with the size of the course when, in fact, the research indicates it is the level (freshman, sophomore, etc.) and the fact that the course is required that are the factors which contribute to generally lower student ratings. The important conclusion to be drawn at this point is the necessity to systematically incorporate these findings into the interpretation of student ratings. From ACE_bulletin.html
