How I Feel Can Make a Difference in How I See You Teach.
This study surveyed undergraduate students and graduate student teaching assistants (TAs) to determine how the attitudes of both groups influenced student evaluations of the performance of foreign and domestic (American) TAs. A total of 278 undergraduates, 29 foreign TAs, and 33 domestic TAs participated in the survey. It found the strongest correlations between the overall teaching skills evaluations of the foreign TAs and the undergraduates' perception of their TAs as a professor or instructor, and the overall teaching skills evaluations of the domestic TAs and the undergraduates' perception of their TAs as instructors. Other results are discussed. An appendix contains copies of the undergraduate and TA survey questionnaires. (MDM)
