Abstract: This paper proposes a version of Data Envelopment Analysis (i.e., the benefit-of-the-Doubt approach) to construct teacher evaluation scores based on student questionnaire data. A major appeal of DEA is the flexibility in the construction of the scores. In particular, DEA puts teacher performances into a relative perspective to be optimally evaluated thereby accounting for different values and interpretations that teachers attach to ‘good teaching’. Furthermore, if available, expert opinion on the relative importance of teaching aspects can be easily incorporated into the evaluation. The identification of teachers’ relative strengths and weaknesses is another advantage.
