The Effects of College Students' Perceptions of Teaching and Learning on Academic Self-Efficacy and Course Evaluations.
Byer, John L.
Using a short form of the Student Assessment of Teaching and Learning (C. Ellett, J. Ruggutt, and D. Davis, 1999) and the Personal Learning Efficacy Measure (C. Ellett, J. Ruggutt, and D. Davis) in addition to a course evaluation form, this study investigated relationships between the college classroom environment variables of involvement, knowledge, professional skills, and higher order thinking skills and the dependent variables of academic self-efficacy and course evaluations. Participants were 102 students enrolled at a southeastern university during the spring 2001 semester. Multiple correlation analyses found that the predictor variables explained 32% of the variance in academic self-efficacy and 45% of the variance in course evaluations. All findings were statistically significant at the rejection criterion of p < 0.01. Similar research may facilitate understanding and improvement of college classroom environments. An appendix contains all three study instruments. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/SLD)
