Poster #12: CHRIS GRANGER & AUDREY PAXTON – Replication of Rubin (1992) Study on the Effects of Ethnicity on Students’ Perception of Teacher Effectiveness and Accent

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Rachel Hayes-Harb

In this study we are replicating Rubin (1992) with materials provided directly from Donald Rubin. Rubin (1992) showed that undergraduate students will often perceive an accent and rate the instructor lower when the instructor is of a different ethnicity, even when the audio samples are exactly the same. We replicated this study as closely as possible and also chose to extend it by recruiting participants from all age groups and locations, rather than just undergraduates as Rubin (1992) did.
