The paper provides an assessment of a teacher’s qualities by deaf students and students with hearing impairment on the sample of 94 examinees, divided into two groups. The experimental group consists of 47 deaf students and students with hearing impairment (30 students with hearing impairment over 90 dB and 17 students with hearing impairment within the 70-90 dB range), whereas the control group consists of 47 hearing students, aged 16±1.27. The Questionnaire for examining a teacher's qualities, assessing the following six areas (Authoritativeness, Emotionally Positive Reactions, Cooperativeness, Normativity, Orientation Towards Solving Problems, and Emotionally Negative Reactions) is applied, where the examinees express their opinions on hypotheses stated. The results gained are processed by means of a descriptive analysis, whereas the ttest for independent samples is used
for detecting possible differences between the two groups. With regard to this, there is no statistically significant difference concerning any of the aforementioned testing areas. In order for more credible conclusions to be made in terms of the experimental group, an intergroup variability consisting of all three categories of students concerned is subjected to testing as well. By comparing the differences in mean values of the post-hoc Tukey test (Tukey HSD), it is established that the students with hearing impairment are more favourable in perceiving a teacher's qualities than the deaf and hearing ones.
