Abstract: This investigation tested the effects of exam grades received by students on the students’ evaluations of their professors. In accord with predictions based on reinforcement and on adaptation-level theory, it was found that changes In evaluative ratings given by students to a teacher were significantly related to the students’ “obtained grades” and to the students’ “relative grades” (i.e., ratio of obtained grade to expected grade).
