Higher-Order Factor Analysis of Multidimensional Students' Evaluations of Teaching Effectiveness.
Chau, Hung; Hocevar, Dennis
Higher-order confirmatory factor models positing one, two, and three higher-order factors were tested using class-averaged responses to the student rating instrument, Students' Evaluations of Educational Quality (SEEQ), developed by Marsh (1987). Three higher-order factors, Presenter, Rapport, and Regulator, were consistent across a data sample of over 6,322 classes of undergraduates in representing 8 distinct SEEQ first-order factors. The three higher-order factors were found to be stable across classes that were different in terms of academic discipline (Social Science, Business, Engineering) and instructor level (Full Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor). The study results supported the three higher-order factors as potential composite measures of college instruction for practical purposes in faculty teaching evaluation. Four tables and one figure present data; an appendix presents the survey form. (Author/SLD)
