Relationship Between Student Instructional Ratings and Student-Faculty Psychological Types.
Blank, Logan F.
Previous research has found little or no relationship between student instructional ratings and numerous academic and personal variables. This study sought to determine if such ratings are related to student and instructor psychological types. Undergraduate engineering students (297) and nine instructors were administered the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator which is a personality classifier based on self-reporting. In addition, students responded to the Student Instructional Rating Report (SIRR) which provides a composite profile of five categories: (1) Instructor Involvement; (2) Student Interest; (3) Student-Instructor Interaction; (4) Course Demands; and (5) Course Organization. Various analyses of the data were described. They revealed no significant differences in student instructional ratings among student types. There were, however, significant differences in student ratings among faculty types for three of the SIRR categories: (1) Instructor Involvement; (2) Student Interest; and (3) Student-Instructor Interaction. The paper concludes by emphasizing the potential influence of personal behavior variables among instructors in determining student reaction to classroom instruction. Implications are discussed. (TL)
