Teaching and learning are the two sides of a coin. The most accepted criterion for measuring good teaching is the amount of student learning that occurs. There are consistently high correlations between students’ ratings of the “amount learned” in the course and their overall ratings of the teacher and the course.
Those who learned more gave their teachers higher ratings (Cohen, 1981; Theall and Franklin, 2001).
