CEG Publishes Errata to Correct Mistakes

We, the editors of the Spring 1995 edition of the Course Evaluation Guide, would like to notify the public that there are two additional sections: the "Errata" and the "Addenda," which have recently been published.

The Errata section was created to correct a writer's error in the Physics II (8.022) summary, which had inaccurately represented the evaluation of Professor of Physics Raymond Ashoori. This particular write-up contained a misquotation as well as the misleading statement that the professor received "mixed reviews." His numerical rating of 6.4 on the 7.0 scale is more correctly indicative of the professor's performance than the summary which originally appeared in the Guide.

We would like to express our sincere apologies to Professor Ashoori and the MIT community for these mistakes and note that the error was unintentional. We would also like to point out that to rectify the situation we rewrote this portion of the 8.022 review, which is now also available at the CEG office and the Source (the information desk) in the Student Center. Readers are instructed to ignore the write-up posted in the Guide; instead, they should refer to the Errata publication for an accurate summary of the course.

The Addenda section was published to rectify a printing error which left out the final portion of the evaluation of Psychology of Technology (STS015) as well as the beginning portion of Technology and Culture (21A 340J). These two summaries are now printed in their entirety and are currently available in the CEG office and at the Source in the Student Center.

We apologize for these errors and any inconvenience that we may have caused.
