Gathering students’ feedback and evaluation during the end of every semester is believed to be valuable for instructors’ growth and development. The present study is aimed to find out the validity of students’ responses and the various factors involved in their rating towards faculty. A total of 250 students from 1st to 4th year of Abu Dhabi University participated in this study. Students from all the disciplines had participated in this study which included both male and female students. The study also focused on other covariates like gender, age, specializations, and student GPA to have any relation with their rating towards professors. Pearson’s correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis were employed to understand the various factors impacting students’ perception of their instructors. The results revealed that gender, age, student GPA, and instructors’ nationality had a positive effect on students’ evaluation of the instructor.
