Student evaluation of instructors has been widely used for evaluating the effectiveness of courses and faculty in Computer Information Systems. The exiting evaluation system rates and tallies a number of factors, and subsequently associates the rates with the course effectiveness. The rates are often correlated to the popularity of an instructor. There is no sound foundation behind the existing questionnaire that can show the rate given by students depicts the course effectiveness. There is a dire need for a better method of evaluating the effectiveness of an Information System course. This paper reviews the research in the area of student evaluation, defines teaching and teaching effectiveness and proposes a quantitative model for measuring effectiveness in teaching Information Systems courses.
