Does the Instructor or the Course Make the Most Difference in Student Evaluation of Instruction?
Van Nelson, C.; Cossaart, Elaine R.
Data from a total of 6,726 evaluation forms collected over three terms supplied information concerning instructors and courses. Items on the evaluation forms were separated into five factors. The variance-covariance matrix of these factors for each class was compared with the combined variance-covariance matrix of the other classes taught by the instructor. It was also compared with the combined variance-covariance matrix of other sections of the same course taught by different instructors. In most cases, the variance-covariance matrix for a given class resembled the combined variance-covariance matrix of other classes taught by the instructor. (Author)
