Abstract (2. Language): 
In light of recent developments in the educational system in Turkey, we aimed to investigate students’ evaluation on teaching effectiveness in business school. We attempted to learn the characteristics students consider when they evaluate overall performance of instructors and the factors that influence the students when they appraise the instructors and their courses. In our study, we attempted to draw attention to a verified multidimensional measure of teaching evaluation. For this purpose, Students’ Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness Rating Scale (SETERS) was used in a business faculty in Turkey. Findings show that students consider “effective knowledge delivery” and “communication skill” as important aspects of a successful instructor.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Türk eğitim sistemindeki son gelişmeler ışığında, “etkin öğretim” ve “öğrencilerin değerlendirmesi ile etkin öğretim” kavramlarını bir işletme fakültesi bağlamında araştırmayı amaçladık. Eğitimcilerin genel performansını değerlendirmek amacı ile öğrencilerin ne tür özellikleri dikkate aldığını; eğitimcillerin genel performansını ve derslerini değerlendirirken öğrencileri etkileyen faktörleri sorguladık. Çalışmamızda, “Student’s Evaluation of Teaching Effectiveness Rating Scale” (SETERS), öğretim değerlendirme üzerine uluslararası boyutlu bir ölçek, Türkiye’deki bir üniversitede, işletme fakültesi altında ele alınmıştır. Ulaşılan bulgular, öğrencilerin “etkin bilgi aktarımı” ve “iletişim becerisi” özelliklerini etkin bir eğitimcide olması gereken önemli unsurlar olarak nitelendirdiklerini göstermektedir.
