A prospective study of educational research was carried out. Its type was observational, comparative and longitudinal being its main objective to determine whether the student evaluation of the teachers' performance and the immediate feedback that the students gave to the teachers are useful to improve teaching effectiveness. An instrument of evaluation was outlined with the students give a certain grade on the teaching performance of eleven physicians who participated as teachers in three or four courses for training of medical teachers. Each teacher's grades were compared with the ones they got in preceding courses, and a significant statistical difference was observed in almost all the cases (p less than 0.001) which was interpreted as an improvement in performance after receiving the immediate feedback at the end of the previous course. There was a strong positive correlation (r = 0.86) between different tests applied to the students and the grades that the students give to the teachers. The instrument of evaluation turned out to be reliable and reasonably valid. In conclusion, the evaluation that the students make of the teaching performance and the immediate feedback that the teacher receives are of great help to improve teaching effectiveness.
