The Relationship of Selected Student Characteristics to Components of Teacher/Course Evaluations Among Freshman English Students at Kent State University.
Kennedy, Robert W.
The present study was conducted to determine the relationship between student ratings on the components of a teacher/course evaluation instrument and their scores on selected Omnibus Personality Inventory Subscales, American College Test scores, "expected grade,""actual grade,""expected-actual" grade differential in the course, gradepoint average, and the variables of sex and college membership. The research was completed using both standardized and nonstandardized instruments administered to freshmen students enrolled in a required English course during the 1970 fall quarter at Kent State University. The results are reported in a series of 37 tables. Suggestions for further, broader research in the area are made to determine what criteria variables students use to evaluate above-average teachers.
