Abstract


This study aimed to identify levels of teacher misbehavior and teacher credibility among a group of undergraduate students in
Jordan, and investigate the relationship between them. Data were collected from a questionnaire in the fields of teacher
misbehavior and teacher credibility were administered to a study sample of 273 male and female undergraduate students at the
Hashemite University during the academic year 2015/2016. Results indicated that the student perception of both teacher
misbehavior and teacher credibility was medium level. Moreover, results showed a negative and statistically significant
relationship between irresponsibility and teacher credibility. Upon the findings of the current study, many recommendations
were made to examine the psychometric qualities of the multidimensional perfectionism scale and motivation orientation scale
in other populations such as secondary school students.
