Abstract

The paper presents the system of evaluation of lecturers lecturing at the post-diploma studies “The Quality Management in an Enterprise” organized by the Faculty of Organization and Management of the Silesian University of Technology. The system is a part of a wider research program on education quality realized on the basis of a survey performed at the end of each semester. A significant role of such evaluation in an overall assessment of the teaching quality process has been highlighted. The paper shows the metrization of rating results and their presentation in a universal unitary scale of relative states. Various methods of elaborating the results have been proposed. The analysis of the obtained results has been done for the selected cases from the period between 2001 and 2004. The results of the above analysis have been used to improve not only the way of managing the studies but also the teaching techniques of individual lecturers.
