As the semester begins to wind down (don’t worry seniors, you still have some time left before it’s all over), professors have started handing out their teacher evaluation forms for all of their students to fill out.
While the whole point of the evaluations is for the school or university to evaluate the professor and not for the professor to see, as a student, you can’t help but feel like your teacher is eventually going to read what you wrote. And if he/she sees it before you’ve been given your final grade, it could hold weight on how you do.
“Professor Anthony was an inspirational and motivational teacher who made the learning experience a pleasure” really means: “Hey professor, I made you look good, now give me that f*cking A!”
Though some students take this route of “sucking up” via teacher evaluations, others take it as a chance to get a bit of revenge. Finally, an opportunity to tell the school (if they even ever read it) how you really feel about your teacher.
In the world of teacher evaluation one-liners, that’s gotta be one of the greats.
