Abstract: Based on 820 entries on Ratemyprofessors.com, we explore whether information systems course ratings differ from those in marketing or management courses, whether lower level course ratings differ from those in senior or graduate level courses, whether course ratings differ between genders, and whether perceived course difficulty impacts course ratings. Our findings did not reveal significant differences between information systems and other subjects. However we did find a substantial relationship between perceived course difficulty and overall course ratings. Rating differences between genders and across course levels was not found to be statistically significant given our sample size.
