Evaluation On the Increase

A recent education ministry survey shows that faculty evaluation at the nation's universities has increased dramatically in the last few years. Of 671 schools surveyed, 76% said they implement teacher evaluation by students, almost double the number from 1997. Evaluations were based on ease of understanding, speaking style, and the use of blackboards and audio-visual materials. 61% of schools have systematic "faculty development", an increase of 20% from last year, but only 15% of universities have peer evaluation. About 20% have seminars for new lecturers.
