Faculty mentor: Rachel Hayes-Harb

We performed a replication study of Rubin (1992), which examined non-language factors affecting undergraduates’ judgements of nonnative English-speaking teaching assistants. Our study’s participants listened to a lecture paired with an image of either a “white” or an “Asian” lecturer. They then took a comprehension test. The participants under the “white” lecturer condition were more accurate on this test on average and rated the “white” lecturer as more competent than the “Asian” one was.
