Students were asked to evaluate faculty on a continual basis at most universities in Malaysia. However, students have varying perceptions about the purpose and usefulness of these evaluations. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate student feelings on the evaluations. This study, presents primary data collected by self-administered questionnaires involving a sample of 200 undergraduate accounting students. A random sample of accounting students from College of Business Management and Accounting, UNITEN will be polled about their intentions and expectations of the student ratings of lecturer. We used factors analysis with varimax rotation to factorize the fourteen variables on student intentions and expectation, cluster the variables into several underlying variables. This study will reveal interesting insights about student intentions and expectations as well as constructive ideas on how better to administer the evaluations and publish the results. Results can benefit not only business schools in UNITEN, but also other universities in improving the evaluation process and linking the results to other rewards and faculty improvement mechanisms.
