''Endogenous effects of midterm grades and evaluations: a simultaneous framework''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.3 )
In this paper, we estimated the link between overall evaluations and grades in a simultaneous framework. We adopted midterm grades rather than expected grades as a proxy for final grades, which is innovative in studies of this issue. In doing so, we found a positive and significant relationship between overall evaluations and midterm grades, which implies that students rate their professors primarily based on their midterm achievement.
Keywords: Student evaluations; Midterm grades
JEL: A2 - Economics Education and Teaching of Economics: General
C3 - Multiple or Simultaneous Equation Models: All other
