Hey Hubert, thanks for taking the time to read & respond to the post!

I think we completely agree, actually. What I am arguing for is to change the way we ask questions, when we ask, what we do with them, etc. I don’t think there is one simple solution like “more surveys” or “no surveys” or anything of the sort — simply pointing out that the culture that has developed around teacher and course evaluations as they exist in many schools now is not achieving what they were probably originally intended to achieve, and instead having many negative effects.

When I say “stop asking students to evaluate teachers” — I am referring directly to the types of evaluations that ask students to “rate” a teacher or evaluate their methods. I support — and think we need to do more of it–asking students to evaluate their personal experience in the classroom.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
