STRUCTURAL AND AFFECTIVE ASPECTS OF CLASSROOM CLIMATE.
WALBERG, HERBERT J.
USING THE CLASSROOM AS THE UNIT OF ANALYSIS A 25 PERCENT RANDOM SAMPLE OF STUDENTS IN 72 CLASSES FROM ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY TOOK THE CLASSROOM CLIMATE QUESTIONNAIRE IN ORDER TO INVESTIGATE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STRUCTURAL (ORGANIZATIONAL) AND AFFECTIVE (PERSONAL INTERACTION BETWEEN GROUP MEMBERS) DIMENSIONS OF GROUP CLIMATE. REGRESSION AND CANONICAL CORRELATION DATA WERE CALCULATED BETWEEN ALL STRUCTURAL AND AFFECTIVE ASPECTS. A CHI-SQUARE TEST OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STRUCTURAL AND AFFECTIVE DIMENSIONS WAS SIGNIFICANT AT THE .001 LEVEL. STUDENTS WHO PERCEIVED THEIR CLASSES AS DISORGANIZED AND STRATIFIED ALSO SAW THEMSELVES AS ALIENATED, DISSATISFIED, AND IN CONFLICT WITH ONE ANOTHER. INTERPRETATIONS OF GREATER COMPLEXITY ARE GIVEN FOR THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN STRUCTURAL ASPECTS SUCH AS EGALITARIAN, STRICT CONTROL, AND GOAL DIVERSITY, AND AFFECTIVE MEASURES OF INTERNAL FRICTION, CLASSROOM INTIMACY, AND GROUP STATUS. PROJECTED STUDIES ARE DESCRIBED. (AW)
