Remarks FAILED - Memo from VP for Academic Affaira W.A. Baker, dated October 31, 1991, says "I do not believe the resolution is either desirable or practical."
Whereas Students are asked to fill out teacher evaluations very semester; and
Whereas These evaluations are available to the professors and departments and are used to determine the effectiveness and success in research to the teacher's approach and class structure; and
Whereas These evaluations are not available to the very students who fill them out; and
Whereas Information on teacher and their class structures is available to students trying to choose the most effective teachers.
Be It Further Resolved That Teacher evaluations be made available to students immediately after the teacher and their departments have finished with them; and
Be It Further Resolved That These evaluations (or at least the statistics compiled from them) be placed in the UTA library in reserve so they are available for student pursuit and copying. *The PSU will volunteer to compile the information in conjunction with other interested parties.
