Abstract

University students (n=58) responded to a 45-item subjective outcome evaluation scale after taking a credit-bearing elective subject titled "Service Leadership" at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in the first semester of the 2013-14 academic year. Results showed that the students generally displayed positive perceptions of the program content and the instructors, and most of them perceived the subject to be beneficial to different aspects of their development. As predicted, three subscales of the scale (Program Content, Program Implementer, and Program Benefits) were significantly correlated. Similar to the previous studies, perceived quality of the program but not quality of instructors and program benefits predicted the students' overall satisfaction with the program.
