Abstract:To support the development of Impact!, this study sought to answer the following research question: To design a valid and reliable instrument for measuring student perceptions of teaching quality after a lecture in higher education by means of the Impact! tool, which items should be included in the Impact! questionnaire? This study is structured in three stages and uses Pride’s (2010) model for questionnaire design. In stage 1, focus groups were facilitated for experts to evaluate the items in first draft of the questionnaire. In stage 2, cognitive interviews were conducted to determine whether the target audiences comprehended the items in the second draft of the questionnaire. In this stage 3, the third draft (pilot version) of the questionnaire was added into the Impact! tool, and tested in lectures at institutions of higher education. It was determined that the third version of the questionnaire is loaded on one single factor, which is predicted to be the underlying construct of ‘teaching quality’. The third version of the questionnaire was also measured to have an acceptable reliability of .75.
