Measuring the Social Climate of the Classroom.
Barclay, James R.
The Barclay Classroom Climate Inventory, an instrument designed to measure self-competency skills, peer evaluations, vocational awareness, and teacher judgments of elementary school children is outlined. A brief review of the literature is presented, with a discussion of the parts of the instrument and the methods whereby the scores derived from independent sources (self, peer group, and teachers) are converted into a unique narrative report about the child which interprets the data more effectively than human analysis. The instrument provides information concerning the behavioral and social skills of individuals in the classroom, and the group characteristics of the classroom which foster a learning environment.
