Herbert Marsh is the author of one of the world’s most popular instruments measuring Students’ Evaluation of Education Quality (SEEQ). Borrowing extensively from Marsh’s review of the literature, we will address questions such as: Is university students’ evaluations of teaching (SET): (i) multidimensional or unidimensional, (ii) reliable and stable, (iii) a function of the instructor who teaches a course or the nature of the course that is taught, (iv) affected by grading leniency, class size, workload and prior subject interest, and (v) useful in improving teaching effectiveness? Relevant empirical research findings and implications for teachers and administrators will be discussed.
