Characteristics of Reticent and Disruptive Children As Identified by the Barclay Classroom Climate Inventory.
Barclay, James R.
The Barclay Classroom Climate Inventory was employed to identify the psychometric characteristics of reticent and disruptive children. The BCCI utilizes self-competency judgments, peer nominations, vocational interests and teacher adjectival ratings in an effort to measure the various expectations which interact in the elementary classroom. A narrative summary of the characteristics of individuals as seen by themselves, by others, and by the teacher and a report on characteristics of children in the classroom are presented. Chi Square Analysis, Analysis of Variance and Step-wise regressions were obtained for 339 elementary school children. These findings are related to the development of the narrative computerized reporting system of the BCCI and the use of learning team consultants for planning curricular or intervention strategies.
