Abstract
Background: The most important reason for evaluating teachers is to improve the educational system. The present study was conducted with the aim of determining the viewpoints of faculty members and students of the Faculty of Dentistry of Islamic Azad University, Tehran Branch, about the evaluation of the faculty by the students and its related subjects in 2014.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted with a separate questionnaire. The teacher's view was composed of 9 questions and the student questionnaire consisted of 5 separate questions and both were 5 choices Likert Scale. Validity of the questionnaires was confirmed and their reliability was determined by Cronbach's alpha of 80%. Finally, if the score of the questionnaire was above 50% of the total score, was recorded as a positive (agree). The role of related factors was analyzed by Chi-Square test.
Results: Out of 70 professors, 17.1% had a positive (agree) and 82.9% negative viewpoints (opposite) to the evaluation. The main reasons for this were the lack of responsibility and honesty of the student and his lack of justification for completing the evaluation form. Of the 120 students, 65.8 percent of the respondents agreed to rate the evaluation. The most important reason was not considering their evaluation results. Teachers who opposed the student's survey were more likely to be female (p <0.02).
Conclusion: It seems, the majority of faculty members did not approve their evaluation by the students, while most students agreed with the evaluation of the professors. Although the professors are not satisfied with this evaluation process, the students are.  New teachers evaluation methods as triangular or multiple ones (360 degree) and also explanation courses for teachers and students before evaluation is suggested.
