A Study of the Relationship of Selected Student and Teacher Characteristics to the Effectiveness of Instruction in the Biological Sciences as Perceived by Junior College Students.
Willingham, David Coye
This study investigated the relationships between student ratings of junior college biology teacher effectiveness (measured by the Purdue Rating Scale for Instruction) and teacher and student characteristics elicited by questionnaires administered to the 29 participating teachers and over 1000 students. Teachers were rated higher, overall or on selected factors, by students over 21, who were potential teachers, had completed a second high school biology course, or were science majors. Teachers who had high school teaching experience, approved (rather than highly approved) the student admission policy, preferred teaching in a senior college or university, or who taught a course similar to student's expectations were rated higher overall. Other relationships occurred for the students' rating of the suitability of the laboratory facilities and assigned textbook. (Author/AL)
