Students frequently choose their classes based on their peers' opinions of the professors teaching them. These options are usually in the form of anecdotes and descriptions rather than numerical data, and can be collected as text in a central system for public viewing. This project examines the validity and usefulness of this textual information on a variety of such systems. The results are used for the creation of an online system that offers the most effective dissemination of the information.
