Abstract

The purpose of this experiment was to investigate the effect of race and scholarship type on a hypothetical professor’s perceived efficacy. The researcher hypothesized that hypothetical African American applicants to a faculty position would receive lower efficacy ratings than their Caucasian peers. The researcher also hypothesized that applicants with prior experience in a classroom would be rated as more efficacious than their peers who had no classroom experience but more field experience. The participants reviewed the CV of a hypothetical incoming faculty member and then evaluated the applicant’s efficacy. Results will be discussed during the presentation.
