The Student Perception of Faculty Scale: Development, Testing and Practical Application
Mueller, Thomas S.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v28 n1 p99-116 2017
This study involved a sample group of students residing in residential halls at a state university in a qualitative and quantitative analysis to measure their perceptions of the university's faculty. Exploratory, then confirmatory, factor analysis revealed a 3-factor model representing teaching faculty: a negative, emotionally challenging Detrimental professor; a positive, caring Beneficial professor; and an extroverted, engaging Experiential professor. Regression testing indicated the Beneficial professor type was a significant, positive predictor of the 9-theme Perception of Faculty Scale.
