Special Services Project Survey Form on Teachers' Characteristics.
Gill, Wanda E.; Brooks, Cornelia
An instrument that allows students to rate characteristics they use in selecting teachers is presented, along with a brief literature review on college students' perceptions of faculty. The inventory is designed to provide college administrators feedback on what students perceive to be positive teacher characteristics. For the first part of the instrument, students list the rank order importance of 37 teacher characteristics. The second part deals with the students' actual experiences with their teachers at Bowie State College. Respondents indicate their agreement/disagreement with 50 statements, using five possible responses ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree. Respondents may also write the name of a teacher as an example for each item. The literature review cites 11 studies that investigated the following topics: research productivity and teaching effectiveness, halo effects in student judgments of teachers, personality traits, mathematics lecturers, class size, and gender factors.
