Over the last five years, a great deal has been published about the danger of using student feedback to assess our teaching practice. We have read that such feedback may be unreliable and biased and now wonder how we should interpret the feedback we receive. More significantly, we wonder whether it is even possible to give students a voice in a way that is fair and just. In this talk, Dr. Betsy Barre will present a summary of the expansive literature on student ratings, highlighting points of wide agreement and their implications for the interpretation of student feedback at the individual, departmental, and institutional levels.
