    Love it. Related: my favorite student evaluation ever was “She went and had a baby during the semester and her substitute sucked.” My husband just got one last semester that said it he was mean to people with disabilities.Report

    I’m still pondering whether “passable professor” means my teaching is marginally acceptable or that students can pass my classes.

    But having tenure renders this a purely academic inquiry!Report

    My favorite teaching evaluation, of all those that I received, said: “I think Dr. New is an excellent professor. I never fell asleep once in his class.”

    At least I entertained them.Report
