Theory Seminar: On teaching evaluations with agnostic students

The School of Economics invites you to an economic theory seminar by Murali Agastya (University of Sydney).

Abstract

Teaching evaluations, scoring of grant proposals, client satisfaction surveys etc. elicit user feedback via questionnaires that force coarse responses, which are then aggregated to rank individuals (teachers, grants etc.). How should one aggregate the received feedback of the  users (students, peer reviewers, users etc.) to determine the “best teacher(s)”, the “winning grant proposal(s)” etc.  We present a set of desirable criteria and characterize the implied scoring rules.  A key issue concerns the treatment of “agnostic” feedback.
