Summary

Fifty instructors, from nine school districts and five 4-year institutions, are taking part in the SET program--Students Evaluate Teaching. Research shows that (1) students can and do make fairly sound ratings of their teachers; (2) they tend to agree with each other; (3) teachers rated best by students tend to obtain highest student gains; (4) student ratings often differ from those by principals, supervisors, and other teachers. SET is an effective way for students to express their opinions, valid or otherwise. A visiting instructor is requested by any educator who feels the session can help him improve his teaching. The visitor leads a student discussion, during which he elicits their comments. The requesting teacher prepares his class for the visit, urging candid comment. Both teachers assure the students that their anonymous remarks will be used only for improving course content and teaching methods. (This report includes a copy of the visitor's discussion agenda.) Transcripts of the session, a conference between the two instructors, and a class discussion after the visit make up the evaluation. The experiment's immediate objectives are to give a chance for the teacher to improve his instructions and the student to express himself on the programs. It is a way to define a group's concept of what makes one member of an occupation more effective than another. The SET evaluations will be raw data for application of the Critical Incident Technique. Future plans for the program are discussed. (HH)
