A lot of fuss is made over student evaluation of faculty teaching and there have been suggestions that these student evaluations have more importance in decisions about hiring, tenure and pay of professors. From my perspective, as one who is annually evaluated in this way, doing this would be a mistake. Don't get me wrong, I love hearing that I am "knowledgeable about course material"... would they expect an instructor to otherwise? But, I do have concerns when I think about the student who filled in the evaluation form to the left having any say in my employment and financial future, though I expect it would be favorable.
For the record, at no point in the course did we talk about planes, or my ability to fly one.
