A total of 13,000 students that completed the LTAS online constituted thesample for the study. The 34-item LTAS was used to collect data for the study. Collected data were subjected toreliability and factor analyses. Results showed that the LTAS has two subscales - Attitude to Teaching and LecturePresentation and Organisation. The LTAS was adjudged to possess construct validity, and it was established throughexperts’ judgement. The results also revealed that the LTAS was reliable (Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of0.985, Spearman Brown’s Split-half reliability coefficient of 0.998 and Gutman’s Split-half coefficient of 0.997).Thus, the LTAS possessed adequate psychometric qualities that make it suitable for use among Nigerianundergraduate students.
