ASSESSING THE QUALITY OF STUDENTS' RATINGS OF FACULTY MEMBERS AT MU'TAH UNIVERSITY
Abstract:Students are not used as raters to evaluate or judge faculty members' academic performance in some universities because of the lack of trust. This study examined the extent to which students can give consistent and reliable ratings. Nineteen graduate students were asked to give ratings to the academic performance of a faculty member on two occasions with two weeks in between. Results showed evidence of interrater agreement and rater consistency. With appropriate training, students can be a reliable source of information about faculty members' academic performance.
