The Effect of Administrative Procedure on Student Assessment of Collegiate Physical Education Activity Courses.
Zakrajsek, Dorothy B.; Bos, Ronald R.
This study compared the effects of "instructor administered" versus "administrator administered" rating forms on student assessment of instruction given by faculty and graduate assistants. Twelve physical education instructors who taught "paired" sections, i.e., two sections of the same activity course, were studied. Each of the instructors administered the Instructional Assessment Inventory in one of his/her two paired sections. In the other section of each of the pairs, the inventory was given by either the department chairman or the associate dean, but in the absence of the instructor. Significant and differential administrative effects were evident. On four of the twenty inventory items and one of the major inventory sections, when "administrator administered," the graduate assistants were rated significantly lower and faculty received significantly higher appraisals.
