Abstract Introduction: Recognizing effective factors in student evaluation of teaching can reveal the strengths and weaknesses of this method of teacher evaluation and provide the possibility for better planning and obtaining authentic results. This study was carried out to determine the correlation between teacher evaluation results and students’ Grade Point Average (GPA) in Jundi-shapoor University of Medical Sciences in Ahvaz. Methods: All nursing students in Abadan Nursing School who were all female (124) participated in this correlational study. The data collection tool was a valid and reliable questionnaire containing 16 questions. The questionnaires were distributed at the final classes of the semester and the students’ GPAs were recorded on the questionnaires. The data was analyzed by SPSS, and Pearson Correlation Coefficient, t-test and ANOVA were used. Results: A negative weak relationship was demonstrated between teachers’ evaluation scores and students’ average grades (r= -0.091) meaning that the more students’ average grades were, lower teacher evaluation scores were observed. Conclusion: Considering the low correlation between teacher evaluation scores and students’ GPAs, it seems that students’ average scores do not have an effect on evaluation scores. So, this factor cannot be referred to as a bias in teacher evaluation process.
