The Dimensions Used by Hearing Impaired Students to Make Judgements of Instructors and Courses: A Factor Analytic Study.
McKee, Barbara G.; Dowaliby, Fred J.
The study involving 385 students enrolled in the National Institute for the Deaf investigated the dimensions used by hearing impaired students to make judgments about their instructors and whether these underlying dimensions are similar to those reported for hearing students. Data from a large scale field test of a student rating of instruction form were factor analyzed. The underlying dimensions of the instrument were identified, labeled, and then compared to the dimensions frequently reported in the literature on student rating of instruction. Results indicated a strong similarity between the dimensions used by hearing impaired students and their hearing counterparts in making judgments about instructors and courses. Tables with statistical data are appended. (Author/SB)
