Appropriate evaluation of teaching quality can be an effective step in making the right decisions about the mention processes.

FINDINGS: The mean+SD of quality of teaching in undergraduate and postgraduate points of view were 81.90+9.24 and 74.10+9.32 respectively and the difference was statistically significant (P=0.01). Full-timing (P=0.01) and the staffs gender (P=0.01) were two effective factors on teaching quality. Bonferoni test showed that in postgraduate students there was no significant difference in the mean of comments in any of the factors but at the undergraduate level, there was a significant difference in teaching quality based on teaching experience (P=0.03).
