About this Course
Student evaluations of teaching (SETs) are the most common tools for measuring instructor effectiveness. However, there is a large and growing literature documenting some of the major problems with SETs. These findings have motivated a national conversation about measurement of instructor effectiveness and the meaningfulness of statistical data collected from student evaluations.
