A review of the literature on the use of Student Evaluations of Teaching (SET) reveals that discriminatory attitudes including but not limited to racism, homophobia, classism, ageism, and sexism are endemic to this form of performance review, especially those that are anonymous. It is therefore the Association’s recommendation that SET be used for the purposes of self-evaluation and can not be required for the purposes of external evaluations in Salary, Tenure, and Promotion decisions, unless submitted by the academic staff member themselves.
