Students' Evaluations of University Teaching: Chinese Version of the Students' Evaluations of Educational Quality (SEEQ) Instrument.
Marsh, Herbert W.; Hau, Kit-Tai; Chung, Choi-Man; Siu, Teresa L. P.
Chinese University of Hong Kong students (n=844) each rated a "good" teacher and a "poor" teacher using a Chinese translation of the Students' Evaluations of Educational Quality (SEEQ) instrument. Good teachers were rated more favorably than poor teachers on all SEEQ scales, all SEEQ items were judged to be most important by at least some students, and SEEQ items (except, perhaps, feedback on examinations) were seen as appropriate by most students. Relations with background/demographic variables were similar to those reported in North American studies. Multigroup confirmatory factor analysis supported the invariance of SEEQ factor structure across three discipline groups and across ratings of good and poor teachers. In the best model, factor loadings were invariant across all six groups, while factor variances and covariances were invariant across the three discipline groups. The results support the use of the SEEQ in this Chinese setting as well as the generalizability of North American research findings. An appendix presents paraphrased versions of SEEQ items. (Contains 4 tables and 56 references.) (Author/SLD)
