At one LWI conference session this morning, Professors Judy Fischer (Louisville) and Melissa Marlow (Southern Illinois) spoke about Student Evaluations: What Empirical Research Reveals. Each professor gave updates on the relevant literature, and also reported on the results of their own research. They provided information on the inherent limits and biases of student ratings of professors, the evaluation documents themselves, and the ways law schools use student ratings. Their bibliography is available online at the LWI website.
