Evidence of Teaching Effectiveness
It is fairly well documented that teaching evaluations in general are better at gauging student gender biases and grade expectations than they are at providing an adequate picture of teaching quality and effectiveness. Nevertheless, such evaluations are still the standard metric for evaluating teaching and teachers. Below you will find a series of graphs I produced by selecting what I take to be the 5 most relevant measures (out of 23 total) from student teaching and learning evaluations. I chose one set of evaluations for each type of course I've taught. The complete data sets from which these charts were constructed are available for download (the link is under each graph). The students were able to select a value between 1-5 for each question. The scores across the institution are generally high (as I imagine they are at many institutions) so I have moved the baseline of the X-axis to 3.6 to make the small differences that do exist more legible.
