Student feedback on end of course evaluations is essential for teachers. This feedback allows teachers to better understand how to improve and modify their class content and procedures for future classes.
End-of-course evaluations also provide insight about a teacher's overall performance. If a teacher has consistently bad or consistently good performance, his or her supervisors may have no way of knowing unless students reply honestly on these course evaluations. Additionally, end-of-course evaluations are an essential professional development tool for teachers. Student feedback allows teachers to understand what worked well and what didn't work, therefore developing better instructional methods each year.
