I think it also needs to be noted that not all adjuncts are fully employed
elsewhere. Some are trying to make a living by teaching as an adjunct
while they look for that ever-more-elusive tenure track position.
I suggest that the two groups differ in how they view the importance of
student evaluations. Whether that affects their teaching -- that is
something that needs to be studied.
There may be yet another group of retirees and others who choose to work
only part-time, who are not depending on the money to live and have no
long-term career goals.
