LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Utah State University is considering changing the forms students use to evaluate their professors.

The university currently uses a form that hasn't undergone any validity and reliability tests.

An expert on the evaluation forms from the University of Tennessee told students and faculty at Utah State that the school should consider looking over evaluations from the past 15 years to see if they're effective.

Student evaluations are usually a factor in determining which professors receive tenure and are also used to help professors improve their teaching skills.

Utah State Faculty Senate President Mike Parent says student ratings will likely be revisited in the faculty senate this academic year.
