ABSTRACT
This article describes the characteristics of the evaluation of college teaching in two universities from Cuba and Southern Mexico. Because teaching is a complex activity, its evaluation needs to give special attention to contextual factors, and different sources of evidence that provide us with a deeper and broad conception about the meaning of evaluation results. The analysis of both evaluation systems indicates that the evaluation of teaching takes place in different moments and has different purposes. The authors stress the differences and strengths of the two evaluation systems and make recommendations for its improvement. In addition, they stress the need for examining more deeply the evaluation processes and the use of evaluation results in Latin American higher education institutions, as well as its validity and consequences. It is important to examine more closely the processes of evaluation and use of results in institutions of higher education in Latin America and its validity and implications. Although formal evaluation of teaching has significant advances, is still in an incipient stage after more than 30 years of continuous efforts, so it is worth continuing to work on its improvement.
