I’ve been a member of the OC Wijsbegeerte for two years and all the points you make in this article are taken into account by the people who interpret these evaluations. The OC (consisting of students AND staff) are the only ones who are allowed to draw conclusions from these evaluations. There are no ‘evil managers’ behind this whole process.

This might be different in other faculties. I hear the university colleges are quite fond evaluations…

I mean, they’re quite relevant in the bureaucratic proceedings of evaluation (within the UvA).
