Behaviorally-Referenced Factors Used in Graduate Student Evaluation.
Biles, Linnea White
This study of factors used by graduate faculty in their evaluation of graduate students had as its goal the development of a research-based conceptual framework of desired outcomes in graduate education. Factor analysis of the responses of 190 graduate faculty at Kansas State University, Manhattan, to a graduate student performance checklist produced 20 factors interpreted as desired outcomes of graduate education. The first five were labeled Personal and Interpersonal Development, Analysis and Synthesis, Scholarly Productivity, Persistence, and Communication. Significant differences were identified between the scholarly divisions on nine factors used in evaluation and between professorial ranks on two factors. (Author)
