Virginia: Council passes two course evaluation bills "Davis said the problem with the current process is that it has the potential to hurt TAs. According to Davis, TAs can receive poor reviews because some students are not aware of what is under their control. 'The problem is the questions on the course evaluations don't apply to the work that TAs do,' Davis said. 'TAs don't often have any control over the syllabus, the work load, the reading list.' Davis said the bill is geared toward continual improvement of the online course evaluations for TAs. 'Often, a TA receives bad reviews for a professor's course,' Davis said. 'It is all about responsibility.'"
