Does the Attitude Similarity of College Professors and Their Students Produce "Bias" in Course Evaluations?
Abrami, Philip C.; Mizener, Deborah A.
American Educational Research Journal, v20 n1 p123-36 Spr 1983
The relationship between student/teacher attitude similarity and teacher rating form (TRF) scores is examined. Students (N=345) completed a 24-item attitude scale, once for themselves and once for their instructors, and a 28-item TRF. Attitude similarity is of minimum importance when evaluations are used to make gross distinctions among instructors. (Author)
