Preparing Undergraduates to Work With Children and Families
The 2005 NCCCC Annual Conference Proceedings
Student course evaluations were completed by 1,457 students in 43 Child and Family Development courses. The impact of six predictor variables (class meeting time, class size, expected grade, perceived fairness of grading procedures, pre-course interest in the subject, and post-course interest in the subject) on student ratings of instructors was assessed using ANOVA. Results indicated significant positive effects for class size, expected grade, perceived fairness of grading, and post-course interest in the subject, as well as four interactions between perceived fairness and class time, class size, expected grade, and pre-course interest. These findings have application for collegiate and secondary family and consumer sciences educators.
