Two-Hundred and Fifty Scaled Incidents of College Classroom Teaching Behavior.
Sauser, William I., Jr.; And Others
A bank of psycometrically sound scaled behavioral incidents of college classroom teaching behavior was developed for use in devising performance evaluation scales, teacher training devices, and policy evaluation questionnaires. Using a combination of the critical incident and retranslation methodologies a set of 720 incident descriptions was reduced, using psychometric criteria, to a 250-item data bank, consisting of 50 items distributed along an 11-point scale of teaching effectiveness, for each of five categories of teacher behavior: relationships with students; ability to present the material; interest in course and material; reasonableness of the workload; and fairness of testing and grading. College students (N=448) taking courses in psychology at a large southeastern university participated in the development of the item bank. (Author)
