abstract = "In a super-saturated work of academia the real power has slowly moved from academic ownership of their own means of production to a more managerial ethos with all the accompanying control systems, surveillance, bureaucracy, performance audits and judgements. Student evaluationof teaching (SET) has become a significant evaluation tool focusing on front-line contact and quality of teaching, allowing students to make that judgement call. This leaves out a large part of the picture of how institutions are managed and function putting the onus on the academic and their relationship, teaching capability and cohort results. This leads to feelings of a sense of unfairness, questions about validity and reliability of judgement calls based on data of student evaluation of teaching, and fairness in reward and recognition. This work considers the perceptions of Jordanian academic staff of a private institution on the use of SET as a summative tool for performance appraisal. This research has confirmed that the use of SET as a dominant, if not sole factor, in judging performance, can extenuate academic stress and hence the need for results to be used in a measured way",
