Sex and Scholastic Aptitude as Variables in Teachers' Ratings of the Adjustment and Classroom Behavior of Negro and other Seventh Grade Students.
Datta, Lois-ellin; And Others
This study reports the relation of sex and scholastic aptitude to teachers' descriptions of the adjustment and classroom behavior of Negro and other seventh grade students. Scholastic aptitude was estimated by California Mental Maturity Test IQ scores. The subjects were 153 students in a northern Virginia suburban community. The major finding from 2 x 2 x 2 analysis of variance comparisons of teacher descriptions for IQ equivalent subgroups was that the effect of race tended to be contingent on scholastic aptitude and was clearly not dependent on sex. Teachers described higher IQ Negro students as favorably as they described higher IQ Other students but the lower IQ Negro pupil was more likely than the lower IQ Other child to be seen as maladjusted, verbally aggressive, and low in task orientation. A second finding was that boys were described as more maladjusted, more verbally aggressive, more introverted, and less task oriented than were girls. (Authors)
