Using a sample of more than 1000 students, this study reveals that students' perceived learning depends directly on their interest, pedagogical affect, and their learning performance and indirectly on the student-instructor interaction, the instructor's responsiveness, course organization, the instructor's likeability/concern, and the student's learning performance. Likeability/concem indirectly affects student interest by influencing learning performance. The results yield recommendations for schools, department heads, and university administrators.
