Students Evaluations of Teaching: Does Pedagogy Matter?
The object of this study is to determine the extent to which the pedagogical choice of an instructor may influence the student evaluation of teaching effectiveness in Principles of Economics. Estimates of an educational production function are made using a large national data set *TUCE III) available from the National Council on Economic Education. Significant gains in student satisfaction are brought about by intensive use of homework, comprehensive final exams, class discussions, and frequent feedback. Additionally, instructor enthusiasm, class preparation, communication style, and grading standards contribute to the formation of student perceptions.
