Student Opinion Form data on 1610 classes taught in the Department of Administrative Science between 1983 and 1.990 were subjected to SAS analyses employing principally the General Linear Model procedure. The independent variables included Faculty (identified by the two-letter mail code) and Course (e.g., MN3111), and the dependent variable was Mean Item 12 (opinion of instructor, measured on a 5-point scale). The principal results were that Course and Faculty accounted for 66% of the variation In Mean Item 12, with Course accounting for 35% and Faculty for the remaining 31 %. Class Size and Majority Curriculum, by contrast, together accounted for considerably less than 1 %. A major implication of these results is that the appropriate bench mark for comparison In evaluating an instructor's effectiveness in class is not the overall average (across all classes) of 4,03 on Mean Item 12 but the average for the course taught. Mean Item 12 averages are presented for all 131 Administrative Sciences courses in the data set
