The relationship between "Class Size" and student ratings of lecturers' "Teaching Presentation" was analysed. Data from 213 different university lecture halls was collected with classes ranging from 2 to 316 students. The data was analysed by means of Configural Frequency Analysis and a graphical representation of the relationship between "Class Size" and "Teaching Presentation". The results strongly support conclusions that (a) there is only a weak relationship between "Class Size" and student ratings of "Teaching Presentation"; and (b) the relationship is further nonlinear in nature. Theoretical, methodological, and practical issues regarding the research are also discussed in the article.
