North Carolina Central University Students Start Their Own Version of has become a very popular Web site among college students nationwide. By using this site, students can see evaluations of teacher performance by other students who have taken classes with a particular professor. Students get tips on whether the professor is interesting in class, assigns a lot of work, and how he or she grades.

Now the student government association at North Carolina Central University, the historically black educational institution in Durham, is launching its own professor rating service. The Eagle Accountability Database will launch this fall and will only be accessible to NCCU students. Professors will be evaluated using a ratings scale on a multiple choice questionnaire. Students will not be permitted to post comments — good or bad — about a particular professor.
