Abstract:

The appropriateness of a multidimensional scaling technique MDS in attempting to quantify students perceptions of teacher performance is investigated in the following study. Data collected on an interactive computer survey and from Student Opinion Forms SOFs are used to determine if satisfactory linear relationships for teacher performance exist. Multiple linear regression and factor analysis attempt to identify what appear to be the most important characteristics in instructor performance according to the perceptions of a control group. Spatial plots are created reflecting these perceptions.
