A Survey of Undergraduate Attitudes Towards Associate Instructors.
Stayrook, Nicholas; Majer, Kenneth
A questionnaire was administered to 101 Indiana University undergraduates to assess their exposure and reaction to graduate student associate instructors (AIs). The Likert-type questionnaire also obtained background data on the students. Analysis of item responses reveal that students generally react positively to AIs. The data indicate that students feel a) they can respond in class as well or better with AIs than with professors; b) they are comfortable in approaching AIs with problems in class; and c) AIs make themselves available outside of class. (These results are discussed in relation to the improvement of AIs instruction. Ten tables of statistical data are included along with a sample of the survey questionnaire.) (Author/BRB)
