Developing Student Evaluation Instruments to Measure Instructor Effectiveness

Raingruber, Bonnie PhD, RN; Bowles, Kathleen EdD, RN


The authors detail the process of developing four specific tools for student evaluation of faculty performance at the master's and baccalaureate levels. To accomplish the desired goal of improving instruction, these authors believe student evaluation tools should be tailor-made to the educational setting and mode of delivery. The tools described in this article were developed to evaluate faculty performance in clinical-direct, on-campus laboratory, clinically precepted, and didactic settings.
