The Effects of Different Instructions on Student Ratings of Faculty.
Gupta, Venu G.
The influence of three sets of instructions on teacher/course evaluation by student raters was investigated. Students did not differ in their teacher/course evaluation ratings when the instructions specified the evaluation results would be used: (1) only by the instructor; (2) by the administration; or (3) by students for course selection purposes. Secondarily, the effects of rank and class level were also examined. It was found that the evaluation of graduate courses was significantly higher than that of undergraduate courses. With respect to academic rank, graduate teaching assistants received higher ratings than did either assistant or full professors. (Author/LBH)
