Faculty Perceptions of Students: The Development of the Student Rating Form, Part I.
Davis, Junius A.
The development of a Student Rating Form to be used by faculty in systematically describing college students is outlined in this first of a series of reports concerned with faculty characterizations of students. The treatment is primarily historical, providing a basis for subsequent technical reports of analyses of faculty definitions of desirable student traits. Data presented includes a thematic analysis of free verbal descriptions by faculty of students, and the results of a factor analysis (suggesting 16 factors) of variables contributed by an early version of Student Rating Form. A complete list of student traits and a copy of the instrument are included. This scale consists of three sections. Part I determines the degree of contact between the faculty member and the student. Part II requires an evaluation of the student's general academic ability compared with those of his classmates, and ascertains his most significant characteristics. Part III provides an evaluation of the student on a number of traits, contrasting him with his classmates. Description of the development of SRF is available in TM 000 174. (Author/LR)
