Student evaluations of faculty teaching in the clinical, laboratory, and classroom settings are an important source of information for individual faculty and program improvement. Students are asked to evaluate the extent to which the content, teaching methods and management of a course contributed to their learning.
- Evaluations are conducted at the end of each learning unit, usually at the end of a semester and during one of the last class meetings. In addition, students are asked to provide evaluation information at the time of graduation related to their experience in the total program, and periodically as alumni.
- Data are considered by faculty and administrators to be an important source of information for the maintenance and development of the program, and seek faculty cooperation in this continual process.
