Developing a Measuring Instrument To Study Student Perceptions of Good College Teaching from a Cross-Cultural Perspective.
This study sought to develop a valid and reliable instrument to measure student perceptions of good college teaching from a cross-cultural perspective. A total of 63 graduate and undergraduate students from various ethnic and racial groups (Caucasian, African American, Hispanic American, and Asian American) completed a set of open-ended questions regarding their perceptions of good teaching practices and their perceptions about learning. The results of these responses were used to develop a closed-end survey questionnaire that focused more narrowly on identifying the similarities and comparing the differences in perceptions of students from different cultural backgrounds. Test-retest reliability was examined using a group of 30 students who completed the survey twice in a 2.5 week interval. A copy of the questionnaire is included. (MDM)
