The three numbers on the right refer to the number of students and teaching evaluation based respectively on the students' answers to the following two questions:
  1. I have confidence in the instructor's knowledge of the subject.
    5 = strongly agree, 4 = agreee, 3 = neutral, 2 = disagree, 1 = strongly disagree.
  2. Using A-E as grades, what is my overall rating of the instructor?
    5 = A, 4 = B, 3 = C, 2 = D, 1 = E.
