Students' Perceptions of Teaching Quality in Higher Education: The Perspective of Currently Enrolled Students
Ginns, Paul; Prosser, Michael; Barrie, Simon
Studies in Higher Education, v32 n5 p603-615 Oct 2007
The psychometric properties of a version of the Course Experience Questionnaire revised for students currently enrolled at the University of Sydney, the Student Course Experience Questionnaire (SCEQ), were assessed, gathering students' perceptions on a number of scales, including Good Teaching, Clear Goals and Standards, Appropriate Assessment, Appropriate Workload, and an outcome scale measuring Generic Skills development. Confirmatory factor analyses supported the hypothesised factor structure, and estimates of inter-rater agreement on SCEQ scales indicated student ratings of degrees can be meaningfully aggregated up to the faculty level. The authors discuss the SCEQ's usage as an integral part of a broader quality assurance programme at the University of Sydney, including benchmarking relationships with other universities.
