The Relationship between Course, Instructor, and Student Characteristics and Hearing Impaired Students' Ratings of Instruction.
McKee, Barbara G.; Dowaliby, Fred J.
The relationship between student, course, and instructor characteristics and the ratings 283 hearing impaired students gave their instructors and courses at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf were examined. A previously field tested instrument containing 30 items divided into five subscales (practical gain, teacher personality, difficulty, teacher skill, and personal gain) and an overall dimension was administered to each S. Results indicated that lower faculty rank, smaller class size, greater student effort, and higher expected grades were each associated with more positive overall ratings of courses. Results were consistent with findings reported for hearing counterparts. (CL)
