A Crossvalidation of the IIQ Deciles from 1971 to Fall 1972. Technical Report No. 41-73.
VanTuinen, Mark; Pohlmann, John T.
The appropriateness of the Instructional Improvement Questionnaire (IIQ) norms from 1971 for the evaluation from fall 1972 was assessed. The IIQ is a student rating form designed to provide evaluative feedback to instructors about their teaching. To that end the item means for the first 40 items of the IIQ were calculated for each of the participating instructors at the University of Southern Illinois. This included about 900 instructors and 1,454 sections for winter, spring, summer, and fall of 1971, and about 282 instructors and 446 sections for fall of 1972. The study indicated that the 1971 norms are generally appropriate for the 1972 evaluation results. It was recommended, however, that the norms for two of the items be updated to reflect the change in the rating distribution. There results also suggest that the assumption of normality, made in the calculation of decile cut off values, is reasonable and tenable. This assumption will therefore continue to be used in the deviation of decile values. (RC)
