|Title:||The Results of Student Ratings|
Office of Research and Development
The purpose of this study was to compare the results of student ratings of their instructors via paper a nd online surveys. The s ample consisted of students a t 624 undergraduate courses at National H ualien Teachers College in the fall semester of 2001:198 (31.73%) freshman courses, 161 (25.80%) sophomore courses, 146 (23.40%) junior courses, and 119 (19.07%) senior courses. The instrument was the Students' Rating of Instructors (SRI) form developed in 1995 at this college. The SRI form was composed of 13 questions rated on a 5-point Likert scale, ranging from "strongly agree" (5 points) to "strongly disagree" ( I point). These 13 items were clustered around four teaching factors: Preparation/Planning, Material/Content, Method/Skill, and Assignments/Examination. The scores on these four factors were added to give the total score (rating) for a faculty member. The paper scores are significantly higher than the online scores for all of the evaluation items. There are 573 (91.8%) courses for which the average total paper evaluation score is higher than the average total online evaluation score, but only 51 (8.2%) courses for which the average total online score is higher than the average total paper score. These results indicate that the majority of students in all courses give the instructors a higher score when they evaluate them using the more traditional method: sitting in the classroom and using paper forms.
