A Study of the Relationship Between Quality Instruction as Perceived by Students and Research Productivity in Academic Departments. Final Report.
Cope, Robert G.; And Others
This report presents the findings of a study of the relationship between quality teaching and reputation for research and publication in 17 academic departments at the University of Washington. A specially prepared student rating of teaching form was administered in the spring of 1972. The results from the student ratings of instruction were compared with these departments' national ranking in the most recent American Council on Education rating of graduate programs. The results did not indicate that a relationship exists between the student perception of quality of instruction and the reputation departments have among peers for research and publications. The results did show, however, that the relationship between student ratings and research reputation differed according to field of study, and that the results of current research do enter into the instruction received in advanced courses.
