Let's face it. The current process of having students evaluate their instructors is like asking diners to rate their meals. Are diners truly the best people to rate a restaurant experience? After all, many diner reviews are biased by how popular a restaurant is, or influenced by previous commentary they have read. Some diners don't spend a fleeting moment pondering the nutritional value of a meal. Others rate a meal solely on the quantity of food received for the price paid. A few diners eschew all criteria other than taste.
