Q:

How do you write a student evaluation?

A:

There are multiple forms of student evaluations, including numerically ranking particular qualities, offering written reflections on the student or a combination of both approaches. It is helpful to the student to have an informal evaluation by the middle of the term so that they may correct certain behaviors or performance issues before the formal evaluation at the end of the term.

If the teacher ranks the student numerically, he must decide which qualities to score. Typically student qualities include ability, interest, quantity and quality of work, teamwork ability, problem-solving ability, dependability and student response to evaluation. Other qualities include the student's demonstrated capacity for reflection, ethical actions, resourcefulness and communication skills. The numeric ranking should place the student within one of three categories that roughly correspond to the performance being below-average, average or superior.

The written reflection on the student's performance is highly recommended as a way of giving context to any numerical rankings used and to provide a narrative of the student's time in class. The evaluation should also give the student space to offer a written reflection of his time under the tutelage of the teacher. Finally, the professor should provide recommendations for the student's educational and vocational career based on the assessment of the student's strengths and weaknesses.
