How personal effort, student interactions, and instructor support relate to physics student satisfaction
written by Jon D. H. Gaffney and Amy L. Housley Gaffney
We administered the Pedagogical Expectancy Violation Assessment (PEVA), a survey that provides information about students' expectations, experiences, and attitudes pertaining to activities encountered in the classroom, to students enrolled in four sections of an algebra-based active-learning physics course at Eastern Kentucky University. We used results from the PEVA to investigate students' overall satisfaction in the course. Students' experiences of the 14 activities on the PEVA clustered into three factors: instructor-related activities, individual effort, and working with classmates. We found that, controlling for students' expected final grade in the course, frequency of instructor-related activities and affect toward individual effort and working with classmates were good predictors of student satisfaction.
