Rate My Teacher Web Site
« on: March 09, 2004, 07:15:59 PM »
There has been lots of controversy surrounding the web site:

http://www.ratemyteachers.com/canada/index.jsp

Basically it is a rating service that allows students across Canada to rate teachers in their school.  They can add a rating and a comment to your, or even add their school and teachers to their site.

Some boards have blocked this site others have not.  

What do you think of this site?

See if you are there.   :o

I have visited it several times to check out the ratings of different teachers in my region and elsewhere.  For the most part I find the comments to be personal and not worth the consideration of anyone.

  I am impressed that that in cases where the comments are of a particular nasty nature, the webmasters will remove the comment.  They do , however, leave the rating.

Another colleague pointed out this article to me.  It should fill in a few more details.

Thanks for the article but I don't believe it.  Most teachers can not be bothered.  Yes, I am sure it is obvious in some cases, but the mass majority are student oriented comments.  Besides when you leave a comment there is no way you can tell whether it was a teacher or not.

Hi,
Dear
Thanks for the training program. :)I followed the program and noticed a big difference in my swim and bike times. I would normally find myself being passed on the bike course, but this time I was the one shouting “on your left”! thanks again.:)
