Abstract Student evaluation is a common technique for faculty to receive feedback about
their teaching. The study reveals whether there is any relation of students’ gender in evaluating
teacher. The sample size is 250 students from four different universities of Pakistan. The
data analysis is carried out by using descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation),
independent sample t-test, regression analysis and reliability analysis (Cronbach alpha). The
result of the study shows that teachers are evaluated equally by the male and female students.
The analysis showed that there are some differences in teachers’ evaluation.

Bovee et al. (1993, p. 422) say that it is difﬁcult for people to know where they are going
if they don’t know where they have been. Therefore employees’ performance evaluation is
ﬁrst step towards the performance improvement. Though managers and supervisors are the
traditional source of performance appraisal, nowadays peers, team members, subordinates,
internal and external customers also evaluate employees.
