Abstract

This study examined graduate students’ perceptions of master teaching qualities and behaviors exhibited by graduate-level faculty. The Teacher Behavior Checklist (Buskist, Sikorski, Buckley, & Saville, 2002) was administered to graduate students who were asked to rate the extent to which their graduate-level faculty exhibited each of the 28 items using a Likert rating method. Result indicated that Masters and Doctoral students agreed on seven of the top-ten TBC qualities. Academic demographics were examined to determine their effects on item ratings. Comparisons between graduate students and selected undergraduate student samples highlighted differences between different levels of students.
