Abstract:

This study employs a dichotomous Rasch model and differential item functioning to examine 256 responses from undergraduate engineering students. Students perceptions of their least and most favorite courses, as well as the instructional techniques employed in these classes were at the core of the discussion. Lectures was the easiest to endorse item, while the use of Clickers was the most difficult to endorse item. However, in general, students had a difficult time endorsing item endorsing that instructional strategies occurred. Items with the most similar DIF measures include group work and peer discussion. An examination of engineering students' perceptions about their classes is a way to illustrate value of content and also provide insight to instructors about perceived effective course practices.
