A Procedure for Recording Sequential Patterns of Social Interaction in the Classroom.
Fitzhenry-Coor, Ina; Buckholdt, David
A classroom observation procedure for recording and quantifying complex, sequential interactions between subject and teacher or peers has been developed. Two instruments, used in tandem, test hypotheses concerning the consistency of the subject's interactions. The Sequential Record, which is used to record observation, is analyzed for repetitious patterns of social behaviors. These patterns are tested quantitatively over time-series observations with the Interaction Recording Sheet, a tabular format containing 35 categories of student or teacher/peer behaviors. Categories are marked continuously and in sequence throughout the observational period; specific patterns of three to six points of interaction are drawn from the data and quantified. (Author)
