Hello All:
I am a student at Marist College in Ny. I am conducting a study and
was hoping anyone with information or resources could please contact
I intend to conduct a study of gender differences in student evaluations
of college faculty. For instance, I was told research shows that
women faculty and in particular feminist teachers receive lower and
often hostile student evaluations. Students enter interactions with
women instructors with a greater expectation of being made feel
comfortable and nurtured / helped than with male professors.
Evaluations often reflect the stereotypes and prejudices of the
students, not the quality of teaching.
My first step in this process is to gather reasearch.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
Melani Bendfeldt
