Abstract

Background: Teachers’ performance evaluation is one of the most important tools in the education process. It is used to determine weaknesses and strengths of education so that by reinforcing the strong points we can improve the education quality.
Objective: To determine the validity and reliability of practical and theoretical teaching evaluation questionnaires regarding the faculty by the students in Kerman University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: The validity and reliability of the existing EDC questionnaires were reevaluated. At first, the content validity and weight of each item were calculated using the faculty members’ views, then the internal consistency of the questionnaires was determined by alpha chronbach.
Results: Theoretical and practical teaching methods categories including six and seven items showed the highest validity (0.95 and 0.97 respectively). The evaluation category in questionnaire on the theoretical courses indicated the lowest validity (0.69). The questionnaires having 0.91 and 0.97 reliability were considered proper for teacher evaluation according to the students.
Conclusion: The results of this research showed that only one item should be omitted because of the absence of the suitable content validity. However to final confirmation of validity and reliability, it is better to use construct validity and test re-test methods, respectively.
