Abstract

Teachers are evaluated in different ways. However, the most prevalent and controversial method is teacher evaluation by students. The present study was targeted at the examination of students’ view on the teachers’ evaluation criteria. Methods: The population of this descriptive cross-sectional study was 107 students of Paramedical Faculty of Urmia University of Medical Sciences that two of them were excluded from the study since their questionnaires were damaged. The collected data obtained from the questionnaires were analyzed using SPSS software. Results: The current investigation revealed that the majority of students (79) considered “Respectful treatment of teacher with the students” as the most important criterion of teacher evaluation. The criteria of “Teacher’s mastery of scientific concepts and materials” and “The teacher’s ability to present and convey the course materials” composed, respectively, 77.1 and 73.3 of students’ next preferences. “Paying attention to the class duration by the teacher” was the last criterion that attracted the least amount of students’ attention (24.8) to itself. Discussion and Conclusion: According to students’ viewpoint, the criterion of “Respectful treatment of teacher with the students” has a fairly high importance which emphasizes teachers’ responsibility for paying attention to appropriate behavior. The results of this study can be used to achieve educational goals and improve quality of education
