Those Course Evaluations, Again
Since the last time I got evaluated by surly undergrads, I’ve come to the conclusion that course evaluations are a bunch of bull anyway. One can sort of predict what sort of evaluations to get by the demeanor of the students–if they actually ask for help and participate, then their attitude towards the class is probably going to be better. As for the students who lounge around and do nothing and still expect an A…
Well, let’s just say I got a particularly long and angry evaluation in direct contrast with all my other evaluations. I get the feeling that this student is not only ranting about me but the university system in general. But hey, if you’ve registered for a class with a kazillion students, having at least one TA around is pretty much a given.
