Instructor Evaluations in Basic Speech Courses: The Traditional Research Paradigm as a Framework for Analysis.
Nadler, Lawrence B.
Noting that instructor and course evaluations represent important, ongoing concerns to students, faculty, and administrators in speech communication, this paper uses the experimental approach to consider the purposes of evaluations, explores major evaluation issues, reviews the literature concerning specific variables possibly related to these ratings, identifies some problem areas, and suggests solutions for the problems. Following an introduction, the paper explores the purposes and methods of evaluation, methodological issues concerning teacher effectiveness assessment, and artifacts in the teaching effectiveness assessment process--a research review, student attributes, situational factors, course characteristics, instructor attributes, and suggestions. The paper concludes with a five-page bibliography. (HOD)
