The Concept of Behavioral Effectiveness in the Classroom.
The concept of behavioral effectiveness and why it is important to understand and measure relative to what teachers do and the way classrooms are designed are discussed. Aspects covered include the following: (1) which classroom behaviors relate to learning and how they are organized; (2) the significance of classroom behavior as the first thing that the teacher sees, out of which teacher response may be designed; (3) the possibility that such behaviors reflect response to the total demands of the academic situation, and therefore may be more sensitive to classroom adjustment than achievement or other product measures which may be influenced more by I.Q. and extra-classroom factors.
