I always get a little nervous in relying too much student feedback when evaluating teachers. The private school and university worlds does a lot more of this. We do collect information from the students regarding individual teachers, but I am also clear there is often a difference between the most popular teacher and the most effective. Take one look at RateMyTeacher.com or RateMyProfessor.com and the dangers of student evaluation becomes clear. Similar to most elements of education, evaluation should be balanced and have multiple sources of feedback. Colleagues, students, supervisors and parents all have important contributions to help teachers improve their practice in addition to looking at student results.
