The findings described in this manuscript represent the third phase in an ongoing project that began in 2003. In phase one of the project, the researchers developed a student evaluation tool (SET) for evaluating teaching effectiveness in a quantity foods laboratory taught at four- year institutions through a Delphi panel. In the second phase of the project, the researchers solicited feedback from a national sample of hospitality educators regarding the relative importance and appropriateness of the 27 items that were developed by the Delphi panel. The purpose of the third phase of the research project was to solicit feedback from hospitality management students who have completed a quantity foods class at four-year institutions nationwide. The results yielded means ranging between 4.1 and 4.6 on a 5-point Likert scale for each of the 27 criteria items. The findings from the student survey validated the work of the Delphi panel. Furthermore, these findings are similar to the opinions of CHRIE educators, as previously reported.
