Student Evaluation of College Teaching Behaviors (SECTB) Instrument: An Investigation of Factor Structure Stability.
Greenwood, Gordon E.
The purpose of this study was to examine the factor structure stability of the Student Evaluation of College Teaching Behaviors (SECTB), a 60-item, low inference type of student rating instrument designed to assess college teaching behaviors. While the original factor structure was based on the responses of both faculty and students, including both undergraudate and graduate students across several subject matter fields, the current study focused on 1116 primarily male (74%) freshmen (66%) in one subject matter field (mathematics). Only one factor (currency of knowledge) held up without much change. The results tend to indicate that factor analyses should be obtained for the SECTB and similar low inference item type instruments for each instructional unit and subject matter area within a college.
