dc.description.abstract The Online Teaching Effectiveness Scale (OTES) is a new assessment tool for online education. Through a comprehensive review of the scholarly literature covering online teaching effectiveness, the authors developed potential questions for this new scale and tested the questions with more than 200 online college students. Analyzing the data collected, the authors established the reliability and validity of the OTES, making it the only measure of instructors’ online teaching effectiveness with sound psychometric properties. The 12-item OTES is completed by students, who rate their instructors’ teaching effectiveness skills. The OTES yields four scores: Total Teaching Effectiveness, Instructor Presence, Expertise, Facilitation, and Engagement. Feedback from the OTES can assist online instructors to improve their teaching effectiveness by identifying areas for professional development. OTES outcomes can also support administrators in online higher education to assess areas of strength and opportunity for quality initiatives within departments or other organizational units. en_US
