I'm looking for a study which investigated college faculty's perception of an average student in science classrooms.

Some time ago, I remember reading about a study which focused on college faculty's perception of students in science/engineering classrooms. It included something about different models for what faculty expected of students, and then contrasted the results to what students thought the faculty expected of them.
I believe it included a description of a "broadcast model" in which the professor is a transmitter of knowledge, with students acting as an antenna and absorbing everything they say (most professors believed this model to be true).
I apologize for being terribly vague about this, but I just can't seem to find the paper on Google or in my university's library.
Thanks for your help.
