New Study on Implicit Bias in Student Evaluations of Instruction

Feb. 19, 2021

A growing body of research documents systematic differences in how students evaluate college instructors, with women, non-native English speakers, and minorities receiving systematically lower ratings. The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of utilizing modified introductory language to mitigate implicit bias in student evaluations of instruction. The study is being conducted at The Ohio State University during the Spring 2021 semester by Joyce Chen, Brandon Genetin, Vladimir Kogan, and Alan Kalish with support from the Bluenotes Group and The Ohio State University's Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
