The present study was designed to assess the effects on faculty performance of a combination of feedback and personal consultations using college student evaluations. Student evaluation feedback and personal consultations were conducted at least a semester before any follow-up data were gathered. The results indicate that providing computerized results of college student evaluations along with individual faculty consulting sessions helped the instructors to significantly improve their student ratings on two instructional dimensions.
