The Assessment of Student and Faculty Educational Orientations: A Research Strategy for Conflict Assessment.
Stark, Joan S.; Morstain, Barry R.
Although much discussion has centered on the"relative fit" of students with programs and/or institutions, there has been little systematic examination of student educational orientations and their relationship to similar or dissimilar orientations held by faculty in the same institution. This paper highlights that incongruence in student and faculty views regarding curricular-instructional issues is associated with evaluation of courses/instructors, student dissatisfaction, and attrition or early student withdrawal from college. The survey instruments and research techniques employed comprise a direct method of detecting potential student-faculty conflict, with implications for improving institutional viability and responsiveness to changing educational conditions and needs.
