Abstract: To investigate the perceived effects of a subject on leadership and intrapersonal development offered at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, a 48-item Subjective Outcome Evaluation Scale was implemented on a sample of first-year undergraduate students (n=800) in the academic year of 2012–2013. Consistent with our expectation, factor analyses showed that there are three dimensions (program, instructor, and benefits) intrinsic to the scale. Similar to previous findings, results showed that students had positive perceptions about the subject content and teachers, and most of the students perceived the subject as beneficial to their holistic development. Both perceived qualities of the program and instructor were significant predictors of the perceived effectiveness of the program. Perceived qualities of the program, instructors, and benefits predicted students’ overall satisfaction with the program.
