Perceived Teaching Effectiveness of Black College Faculty.
Morrison, James L.
This study seeks to determine whether variance in teaching effectiveness of faculty at a traditionally black college, as assessed by students, can be attributed to particular attitudes, experiences, and teaching behaviors of the faculty. A theoretical model derived from symbolic interaction theory is tested by path analysis. Data to test the model were obtained through a 1976 survey of faculty and students at a four-year black college located in the south. It is concluded that attitudes and socialization experiences used in this study have practically no effect on teaching effectiveness that is not explained through instructional behavior. (Author)
