A Study of the Discrepancies Between Student Evaluation and Faculty Self-Perceptions of Instructional Procedures in Higher Education.
Thompson, Eugene W.
The study investigates the nature of the relationship between student evaluations and faculty self-perceptions of instructional procedures. Various characteristics of students and faculty were treated as independent variables in an effort to interpret the degree to which they affected the discrepancies between the two rating groups. The characteristics investigated were: student grade point average, class size, basis for course selection, and the amount of the instructor's teaching experience. The instrument used in the study was the Student Opinions About Instructional Procedures. The subjects for this study consisted of 58 instructors teaching 135 classes. Student and instructor responses to the questionnaire were used to develop discrepancy scores based on the three factors: professional competence, evaluation procedures, and student centeredness which the instrument measures. The data analyzed indicated that the independent variables tended to affect the outcomes in varying degrees. (Author)
