Student Response to Faculty Instruction (SRFI): An Empirically Derived Instrument to Measure Student Evaluations of Teaching
Beitzel, Brian D.
Journal of Research in Education, v23 n2 p97-115 Fall 2013
The Student Response to Faculty Instruction (SRFI) is an instrument designed to measure the student perspective on courses in higher education. The SRFI was derived from decades of empirical studies of student evaluations of teaching. This article describes the development of the SRFI and its psychometric attributes demonstrated in two pilot study field tests. Students in all levels of courses (freshman through graduate) and from many different class sizes participated in these two pilot studies. Response rates were high and the ratings students assigned to the SRFI items corresponded with course characteristics in ways consistent with the empirical literature. Through these two pilot studies the SRFI has shown itself to be a reliable and valid instrument for ascertaining the student perspective on instruction in higher education.
