Using a refined student feedback questionnaire (SFQ), this study examined students' evaluation about a subject entitled "Tomorrow's Leaders" at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) in terms of subject attributes and qualities of teaching staff. Results showed that students were satisfied with the subject (perceived learning experiences, achievement of learning objectives) and teaching of the staff member. Overall, students from Faculty of Engineering and Faculty of Applied Science and Textiles showed more positive views about the subject, while less favorable SFQ ratings were observed in students of Faculty of Construction and Environment. Students' performance in the subject was significantly predicted by their perceived teacher attributes but not subject attributes. Implications of the findings were discussed.
