How Student Satisfaction Factors Affect Perceived Learning

Journal of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Volume 10, Number 1, ISSN 1527-9316


Data from students in two sections of a general education course offered at a research university in spring 2009 were used to explore whether student satisfaction factors are associated with perceived learning as rated by students. A list of 22 elements in the learning environment was explored. The 22 were used in creating 3 satisfaction factors related to the roles of student, instructor, and policy. The study showed all of these satisfaction factors to be associated with higher rates of perceived learning, measured via students' expectations of academic success. The findings' implications for practice are briefly discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
