Introduction: Teachers are among the most important parts of the education system and have an important role in achieving educational goals. Teachers evaluation and assessing the quality of their work is one of the most important aspects of improving the quality of education. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate viewpoints of nursing students on teachers evaluation.
Method: This was a qualitative study conducted on 14 nursing students from the Urmia University of Medical Sciences, Iran. Participants were selected through purposive sampling and informed consent was obtained. Data were collected through conducting deep and semi-structured interviews, presence in the field and taking handwritten notes. All interviews were recorded, transcribed, and reviewed on paper. Data were analyzed using inductive approaches and content analysis.
Results: Three main themes and 13 subthemes emerged about factors accefting teacher evaluation that included the evaluation process (inefficient questions, time, distribution of questionnaires and explanations), functional characteristics of the students (trueness, awareness, integrity, inclusion of personal feelings) and student view (experience of previous encounters, positive, and negative evaluation).
Conclusion: Evaluation is endorsing effective activities and procedures and eliminating or weakening the ineffective or undesirable activities and methods. Based on the results of this study, the assessment process should be changed and the current evaluation process should be corrected to improve the quality of teachers’ work in order to positively impact students’ learning.
