Table 5 Correlation of student enjoyment of clustered PBL with measures of tutor effectiveness.

From: Problem-based learning and larger student groups: mutually exclusive or compatible concepts – a pilot study

Student statements 'I enjoyed taking part in this PBL' 'I consider PBL to be an effective way of learning'
'The tutor clearly explained what was expected of me in this PBL session' r = 0.39 *** r = 0.25 **
'The tutor steered the group effectively in the first session' r = 0.37 *** r = 0.29 **
'The tutor's interventions were appropriate, r = 0.44 *** r = 0.29 **
'The tutor conveyed an interest in this PBL session' r = 0.39 *** r = 0.26 **
  1. Table summarising the level of significance of Spearman correlation between student 'enjoyment' of the PBL process with measures of tutor effectiveness, as perceived by the students. Level of significance ** p < 0.01, *** p < 0.001
