This study extended previous research on teacher immediacy by examining the relationship between teacher immediacy and students' evaluations of the course and/or teacher. Immediacy, course evaluation, and teacher evaluation were also explored in relation to teacher gender and student gender. Results indicated that teacher immediacy had a significant effect on student evaluations. Gender also had a significant, although unexpected, effect on evaluations of both the teacher and the course. Discussion focused on the relevance of these variables for purposes of instructional training and future research.
