Teaching Evaluations.  Teaching evaluations will be distributed during the week of November 15 to elicit students' opinions regarding the quality of teaching at the law school. Instructors will review the responses to improve the quality of their instruction and courses. The evaluations are also considered as one important factor in tenure, promotion, and compensation decisions for full-time faculty and are used as a factor in determining the effectiveness of part-time instructors. They are anonymous and will not be available to professors until after the grades for the courses are recorded.
