Teaching effectiveness at higher education institutions has captured the public attention for at least three decades. The majority of higher education institutions have investigated the relationships between teaching effectiveness and research productivity by measuring teaching effectiveness using students’ evaluations. However, research has indicated that student evaluations are not a reliable measure of performance. This paper introduces an alternative approach to measuring a professor’s performance using student evaluations in the field of information systems. This method measures the significant differences in students’ perceptions with respect to information technology and computers in business, the knowledge gained after taking a particular course, and the effect of the course professor on students’ perceptions. An empirical study involving 328 students at a major university was conducted. Results of the study highlight the contributions of this method in better assessing teaching performance in the area of information systems.
