Reliability of Students' Views of an "Ideal" Student Questionnaire.
Gadzella, Bernadette M.; And Others
The reliability of the Students' Views of an Ideal Student Questionnaire was studied. The questionnaire consists of 26 characteristics of a quality student. The subjects were 88 volunteers (33 males and 55 females), enrolled in various classes at a state university, who responded to the questionnaire twice within 10 days. Subjects included 35 freshmen, 27 sophomores, 19 juniors, 3 seniors, and 4 graduates. They rated each characteristic on a five-point Likert scale with five as the most important, and one as the least important. Correlations for the two responses to each criterion were compared for the total group. The data were analyzed using the Pearson-product moment correlation (test-retest) and Cronbach's alpha (internal consistency) for different groups. All correlations were statistically significant. Results show that the questionnaire was a reliable instrument indicating students' view of a quality student. Four tables present study data. (SLD)
