There is a positive correlation between the expected grade reported and the evaluations given to faculty. The best explanation for this is:
More effective teachers are better at conveying knowledge to their students, who thus deserve better grades.
Students who expect to receive high grades give more positive evaluations to their professors, independent of learning.
Students who slack off and get bad grades are in denial and tend to blame their own failings on the faculty.
Students who are conscientious and dedicated enough to receive good grades are less likely to blame their weaknesses on faculty.
Both good grades and good evaluations are caused by some third factor not measured on course evaluations. The price of ice cream, or something like that.
It's just one of those things, dude. What can you do?
