Colleges and universities have long used student evaluations of professors for many different reasons, including employment evaluations, student satisfaction and quality control. But now, a popular independent website in China, shangxueba provides a public forum for both student praise and discontent. Do these public online evaluations have any educational value?

All constructive assessment is of value. All professions require annual appraisals. One part of this is often to get the "customers" feedback. Such comments are a small part of the appraisal but nonetheless need careful structuring to avoid misunderstandings or false evidence. Were lessons appropriate, clear and interesting. How far is the teacher helpful? I personally feel that whether a student or parent likes a teacher or not is irrelevant, but I understand that this is an important issue in China. More effective evidence for appraisal is through value added test results, open classes and a team leaders comments.

Online evaluation is a stupid idea as it will allow students with grudges, malicious intent or such the opportunity to destroy an academic's career. Plus there are reliability issues and a raft of other potential problems.

   As far as I'm concerned,we can't just judge one thing just according to one single aspect.We are supposed to treat the student evaluations of professors  more roundly.
   On the one hand,the student evaluations of professors do have effects on education.In my view,this kind of evaluation is one useful method to judge whether the work of professors is perfect or not.To be honest,not all the professors can regard their work as carefully as possible.The student evaluations of professors can change their attitude towards the work in a positive way.There's no doubt that the student evaluations of professors do have educational value.The evaluation not only can improve the professors' work efficiency,but also can promote the enthusiasm of them.No one can make progress without any limitation and supervision.
   On the other hand,the student evaluations of professors also have disadvantages on education.In fact,the strict professors can't get high marks in the evaluation,as we all know,when we are in school we are not able to understand the actions of the strict professors.So in this way it's unfair for the professors.
   In a nutshell,now that the student evaluations of professors is used widely in China,the advantages of the evaluation must be more than its disadvantages .

   In my view,we are not supposed to deny the student evaluations of professors so firmly.Don't you think that this evaluation plays an essential role in the education of China?This is the only way for Chinese students to show their will about the professors even about the education.To be honest,you are not objective enough when you are expressing yourself.You just consider it in a negative way.
