Student Ratings of Instruction at Teachers College in Taiwan.
Chang, Te-Sheng
This study examined the effects of course level, class size, and instructor gender on student ratings of teacher performance at the National Hualien Teachers College in Taiwan. A total of 9,843 usable evaluation forms were completed for 440 courses (96 freshmen-level, 142 sophomore-level, 119 junior-level, and 83 senior-level) taught by 132 instructors. The evaluation form contained 13 questions that focused on four dimensions of teacher performance: preparation/planning, material/content, method/skill, and assignment/examination. The results indicated that as the level of the course increased, the mean for each evaluation dimension increased. Class size had no significant effect on student ratings of instruction, though the highest mean evaluations came from classes with 10 or fewer students. Instructor gender had no statistically significant effect on student ratings of instruction, though male instructors were rated significantly higher on the material/content dimension.
