The Relationships Between Student Evaluation of Teaching, Student Achievement and Student Perception of Teacher Effectiveness.
Brown, Ric
This study examines both the relationship between teacher evaluation by students and student performance (where students were unaware of course grades), and the role of learner perception of effective teaching styles on those evaluations. Ninty-three graduate students served as subjects for this study. Near the end of the five-week course, the students were asked to respond to a survey designed to assess learner perception of the teaching process. The evaluation instrument was comprised of four components. The first factor represented attention to the method used in the course. A second factor indicated evaluation of the knowledge of the instructor. The third factor dealt with personal aspects of the instructor. The final factor displayed attention to course content. Results indicate a positive relationship between achievement and four evaluation components and offer evidence of the effect learner perceptions have on their evaluation of teaching. Implications for both teacher effectiveness research and research in teacher evaluations are discussed. A list of references for further research is attached. (JD)
