Coladarci/Kornfield study referenced by USA Today

A USA Today story about RateMyProfessors.Com, a Web site that allows users to post commentary about college professors, includes references to a study by UMaine professors Ted Coladarci and Irv Kornfield published in the journal Practical Assessment, Evaluation and Research.  They looked at correlations between the Web site’s ratings and assessments that students provide when they finish courses.  Coladarci, who is UMaine’s director of institutional research, is quoted in the story.
