Statistical Analyses of the Data from the First Year of Use of the Student Ratings Forms of the University of Washington Instructional Assessment System.
Gillmore, Gerald M.
This report presents statistical analyses of data derived from the first year's use of the Instructional Assessment System. Included are: means, standard deviations, and several reliability estimates for each item within each form; inter-item correlations; and correlations of items with non-evaluative variables. Among the major results discussed are the high item reliabilities for all but small classes, the high inter-item correlations and their implications for use of ratings results for diagnosis of instructional problems, and the causal implications of item correlations with non-evaluative variables, e.g., whether students wanted to take the course and grade expected.
