Student Ratings of Instructional Effectiveness and Their Relationship to the College Classroom Environment.
Holzemer, William L.
Canonical variate analysis was used to examine the relationship between student ratings of instructional effectiveness and the psychological press of the classroom environment. A sample of 29 classes at Syracuse University, Syracuse, New York, completed two instruments which required approximately 50 minutes of class time. One significant canonical correlation was found between student ratings and the environment index. The construct was labeled Academic Structure and was characterized by classical notions of academia, i.e., intellectual challenge, seriousness, and relevancy of tasks. The author suggests that perhaps faculty responsiblilty for student ratings may have to be altered because students' judgements of instructional effectiveness appear to be influenced by the group of students with whom they are associated.
