Many measures of course value are centered on student evaluations of teaching. Colorado College provides a unique opportunity to explore another method of valuing courses by looking at the Block Plan course auction. Kirby Nelson pioneered Block Plan bidding research last year by examining the relationship between Academic Departments and points bid on courses. One factor in course selection that remained unexamined was Professor. A multiple regression analysis is used to study the bidding data provided by the Colorado College Registrar. This thesis investigates the relationship between the professor teaching the course and the amount of points that students bid.
