Course Evaluations: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly


Course evalutions are questionnaires answered by students near the end of a course, tutorial or lab. Their aim is to provide feedback to the instructor on the course regarding such topics as the difficulty of the course content, clarity of the instructor, and pace of the course. Course evaluations are sometimes a controversial topic as their accuracy and usefulness is often questioned. A recent article, which is found here, from University Affairs Magazine aims to rectify this issue.  The article addresses many of the concerns related to course evaluations and provides useful solutions for these concerns.
