Development and Validation of a Theoretically Based, Multidimensional Questionnaire of Student Evaluation of University Teaching
Lemos, M. S.; Queiros, C.; Teixeira, P. M.; Menezes, I.
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v36 n7 p843-864 2011
The authors describe the development and validation of a multidimensional instrument of students' evaluation of university teaching (the Pedagogical Questionnaire of the University of Porto). The goal was to develop an instrument based on a sound psychometric analysis and simultaneously supported by the learning theory. Based on the data from 4875 questionnaires, the present study examined the fit of the proposed multidimensional model of university teaching to the whole sample and to various specific university programmes of study using confirmatory factor analysis (AMOS 5.0). Results clearly supported the applicability of the proposed model for the whole university and across programmes of study, demonstrating the validity and reliability of the instrument in evaluating several distinct dimensions of the quality of university teaching. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
