The data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, independent t-test, paired t-test, and non-parametric Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney tests.
Results: There was a statistically significant difference in the mean scores of early- and end-of-semester evaluations (t=4.51, p<0.001) between the control group (x̄=0.05, SD=0.06) and the experimental group (x̄=0.49, SD=0.35).
Conclusion: The results pointed out the positive effect of early-semester students’ evaluation of faculty members. faculty members’ awareness of students’ viewpoints during the semester can improve their teaching quality as well as students’ satisfaction.
