Student evaluation of teaching (SET) has been around Universities in the Western and Eastern Hemispheres for a few decades now. SET is making in-roads into the Nigerian tertiary education sector. In this project, I identify two arguments (or assumptions) behind the opposition to the institution of SET in Nigeria. I demonstrate that these arguments/assumptions are incorrect and their worries not enough to scrap the programme. I also show that opposition to SET has been witnessed elsewhere before SET gained acceptance.
