Does the Time of Course Meeting Affect Course Ratings by Students.
Yongkittkul, Chumporn; And Others
The ADVISOR (revised form) was used to obtain student ratings of instructors and courses for classes offered in spring 1971. The classes were divided into nine groups according to the beginning time of class meeting to assess possible differential ratings by time. The first two subscales of the ADVISOR, Overall Evaluation of Course and Instructor, yielded significant overall F-ratios from a one-way analysis of variance, but none of the individual comparisons among the nine class meeting times were significant. The other two subscales did not yield significant overall F-ratios. By utilizing the above results and to assess the degree of relationship between ratings and time of class meeting, it was concluded that the time of day at which classes meet does not appreciably affect instructor or course ratings.
