Does Students' Expectation of Teachers Affect Students' Evaluation of Teachers?
Babski, Carl
This report gives an extensive review of the literature dealing with student evaluation of faculty, and investigates the effect of a previously unexplored variable, students' expectations of the teaching-learning situation. Eight student perceptions of the teaching-learning situation were identified: dogmatic, erotic, moral, therapeutic, intellectual, existential, humanistic, and pragmatic. These descriptions of student perceptions were worded into statements for the students to rank on a five-point Likert scale, according to their perceptions of what teaching and learning roles mean. This survey instrument was administered to classes in all four divisions at Miami-Dade Community College, along with questions designed to evaluate the course instructors, and questions intended to elicit information about the students answering the survey. Findings showed that there was no significant difference in the evaluation results among students with different perceptions of teaching and learning roles. The survey instrument is appended, as is a bibliography of literature on the subject of student evaluation of faculty. (NHM)
