A Multivariate Statistical Analysis of Student Opinion Questionnaires Concerning Teaching Effectiveness at the Naval Postgraduate School.
Burgess, Clifford T., Jr.; Allen, Jack
The thesis investigates the characteristics of effective teaching as perceived by students at the Naval Postgraduate School. Principal components factor analysis is used to extract the characteristics from observations on an 86 variable questionnaire form designed by Hildebrand and Wilson. The characteristics are then used as a basis for a short form questionnaire. Cluster and discriminant analysis are used to find teaching patterns or styles based on seven characteristics. Ranking schemes for evaluated instructors are also discussed. (NTIS)
