In my last post, Course Evaluations “Should Be” Us, I extolled the virtues of participating in course evaluations. In case your program doesn’t share the results or you are skeptical about how they are used, here is another option for course evaluation participation.

Of course, public ratings are only ONE source of information about the quality of a course and/or a professor. It should not be your only source. Unless the ratings source also reports accurately on what proportion of students in a course provided the ratings and the evaluation questions, it is hard to judge whether or not results are biased. I.e., Students who REALLY like a course or REALLY don’t are most likely to participate in this type of site. So, reader…take interest…AND beware.
