Abstract

Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) has been a feature of higher education for many years despite disagreements among researchers about its usefulness and desirability, especially when used for summative evaluation of faculty. Use of the same standardized forms in many institutions for evaluating teaching in face-to-face, online and web-assisted courses has made SET more controversial. Inherent differences between various modes of instruction delivery require the use of different instruments for rating teaching effectiveness in each mode. As a first step toward designing valid instruments, it is important to establish the factors underlying teaching effectiveness in each mode. In this study, exploratory factor analysis was used to determine the factors underlying student rating of instruction in online and web-assisted courses offered at a research intensive university in Midwestern US.
