Perception of Interaction and Academic Performance in a Hispanic-Serving Institution

This is a recorded presentation available from January 17, 2013. You can watch the recorded session at our HETS YouTube Channel or right here.


The Leader-Member Exchange (LMX-7) survey focused on the quality of the dyadic relationship between the leader (instructor) and the follower (student). Leaders assign work based on the relationship with the follower. If the relationship is positive, the leader tends to favor the follower with important work. If the relationship is negative, the leader tends not to favor the follower with important assignments. The purpose of the study was to identify the relationships between student’s perception of his/her Level of Interaction with the instructor as measured by the Leader-Member Exchange (LMX-7) and student’s post-secondary Academic Performance in a Hispanic-Serving institution’s online course as measured by number and quality of online discussions, online sense of community and overall satisfaction with online learning. While many studies examine the relationship between student’s personality traits and academic performance, limited studies exist related to the student’s perception of his/her relationship quality with the instructor. This study aims at adding to the body of knowledge of what makes a successful online student.
