Student Perception of Teaching Effectiveness: Development and Validation of the Evaluation of Teaching Competencies Scale (ETCS)
Catano, Victor M.; Harvey, Steve
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v36 n6 p701-717 2011
A major criticism of student evaluations of teaching is that they do not reflect student perspectives. Using critical incidents job analysis, students identified nine teaching effectiveness competencies: communication, availability, creativity, individual consideration, social awareness, feedback, professionalism, conscientiousness and problem-solving. The behaviourally anchored Evaluation of Teaching Competencies Scale is a highly reliable (alpha = 0.94), unidimensional measure that correlated strongly with an instructor-related composite of the Students' Evaluation of Educational Quality (SEEQ, r = 0.72), but not to a SEEQ composite related to instructor assigned work (r = 0.04, N = 195). The results are discussed in the context of other measures of teaching effectiveness and transformational leadership theory. (Contains 5 tables and 1 note.)
