Views of Normative Professional Conduct in Kentucky Higher Education
Alford, Kenneth Ray
Online Submission, Ed.D. Disssertation, University of the Cumberlands
Few studies have explored the ethical conduct of college faculty in Kentucky's institutions of higher education. This study used a causal-comparative design to determine that there were no differences among faculty at three church-affiliated and three non-church affiliated, public institutions in Kentucky. Full-time faculty employed at those colleges voluntarily completed a modified version of the College Teaching Behaviors Inventory (CTBI) instrument. Gender-based perceptions were also measured using the CTBI instrument. Using an independent samples t-test, female respondents (M = 4.4667) were shown to have significantly different views than male respondents (M = 4.2702) with regard to issues involving comments made about students and colleagues, t(145) = 2.254, p less than 0.03. With respect to grading practices that consider non-academic performance in determining grades, female respondents (M = 4.1651) also indicated significantly different views than their male counterparts (M = 3.9624), t(145) = 2.395, p less than 0.02. The following are appended: (1) Informed Consent Statement; (2) Permission to Use CTBI; (3) Original CTBI: College Teaching Behaviors Inventory; (4) Modified CTBI: College Teaching Behaviors Inventory; (5) Table of Means and Standard Deviation for Behaviors Included in the Modified CTBI (by Institutional Type); and (6) Table of Means and Standard Deviation for Behaviors Included in the Modified CTBI (by Gender). (Contains 4 tables.)
