Registered author(s):

    Expectations of a course and instructor are formed prior to engagement in the course which affect learning. By understanding the factors that are involved in setting these expectations, instruction and student learning may be improved. This paper seeks to determine if student expectations set the basis for course and instructor appraisal and what factors affect these expectations or changes from expectations. Results indicate that while instructor appraisal does not change over the course of the semester, variables related to instructor appraisal do change. How worthwhile students view the course can also positively or negatively impact overall course appraisal.
