Some subscribers to Math-Learn might be interested in a recent
discussion-list post "Student Evaluations of Teaching Are Not Valid
Gauges of Teaching Performance - Yet Again!" [Hake (2012)]. The
abstract reads:

************************************************
ABSTRACT: Dorothea Herreiner alerted the POD list to "Evaluating
Students' Evaluations of Professors" [Braga et al. (2011)] at
<http://bit.ly/LqAttL> who wrote "Our measure of teacher
effectiveness is negatively correlated with the students' evaluations
of professors."

In response, Ed Nuhfer pointed to "Does Professor Quality Matter?
Evidence from Random Assignment of Students to Professors"[Carrell &
West (2010)] at <http://bit.ly/KtOnHp> who wrote: "Professors who
excel at promoting contemporaneous student achievement teach in ways
that improve their student evaluations but harm the follow-on
achievement of their students in more advanced classes."

So WHAT'S NEW? See e.g.:
1. "SET's Are Not Valid Gauges of Teaching Performance" [SET's =
Student Evaluations of Teaching]:
Hake (2006a) <http://bit.ly/p3uh2K>;
Hake (2006b) <http://bit.ly/poBg28> (response to Scriven);
Hake (2006c) <http://bit.ly/oHuu27> (response to McKeachie);
Hake (2006d) <http://bit.ly/oX2rBp> (response to Nuhfer);
Hake(2006e) <http://bit.ly/qtJvBd> (response to Theall)]; and

2. "SET's Are Not Valid Gauges of Students' Higher-Level Learning #2"
Hake (2011) at <http://bit.ly/jLZaz5> (response to Woods).
