Recent research has suggested some bias in results based on gender of students, gender of faculty members, style of instruction, and other factors. However, systemic changes have not been suggested that would remove all bias. Instead, the literature encourages faculty to get the highest response rate and look at longitudinal results, comparison of grades earned to average feedback, and other proxy measurements to best understand your results. The Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness works with colleges, divisions, and individual faculty members to help explain the results and provide context. It is encouraged that faculty members reach out to their peers, division chairs, deans, and professionals in this field, like the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, when you have questions or concerns about your results and potential bias.
