Student evaluation of teaching (SET) tool has been extensively used in institutes of higher education and it is unique for every institutions. One of the purposes of SET is to evaluate lecturers' teaching methods in classroom which further assist the lecturers to improve their teaching practices. This paper reviews the SET that is implemented at a Malaysia public university which is used by students to assess lecturers' teaching effectiveness. Document analysis technique was the bases of getting information to investigate the development and implementation of SET and also review the items that are listed including the reliability and validity of these items. The findings indicated two major concerns,. (i) the tool was implemented starting in 2000 with no proof that intervention was made since then, and (ii) the tool was not developed based on an empirical study and thus the development of the items did not consider any rigorous item development procedures. These findings trigger an argument which is presented in this paper, in the ways on how the results derived from the use of SET on lecturers teaching were reliable enough to the extent that they could be used by the lecturers to improve their teaching approaches. Nevertheless, each year the Universify have given Teaching and Learning Award to the lecturer who had the highest score on SET
