As part of this theme panel on “Minding the Gender Gap in Political Science,” I hope to direct our attention to the role of teaching and evaluations of teaching in professional advancement in the discipline. Many female faculty believe that they face prejudice in student evaluations of teaching (SETs), and that this prejudice may be exaggerated by developments such as online evaluations and the prevalence of sites such as RateMyProfessor. However, systematic studies of SETs are mixed in their findings of gender bias.
