Research has highlighted the importance of members of staff knowing their students and one way of achieving that is to ask them to predict students' responses to questions about the teaching process. To this end, student responses to open-ended questionnaires were content analysed to produce a questionnaire about factors that contribute to productive seminars and lectures. A total of 148 psychology students ranked the factors in order of importance and 13 members of academic staff predicted student responses. Results indicated that, despite some differences, members of staff were reasonably accurate in their predictions of student responses. It was also seen that student views were relatively consistent across student levels. The importance of the findings in relation to teaching practice are discussed.
