Abstract:Findings of the second part of the research indicated that students differed in defining good teaching and followed different processes in assigning ratings to their instructors. Other findings indicated that student motivation towards the course content, the ability of the instructor to speak English well, and fairness of grading were among the most influential influences on the student ratings. In addition, class size, course level and the "required" or "elective" nature of the course also influenced student perceptions of the instructor's teaching. The study also found some evidence of negative influences of race, gender and ethnicity of the instructor on the ratings that students gave their instructors.
