Influence of Feedback, Teacher Praise, and Parental Support on Self-Competency of Third Graders.
Davis, Lonnie H.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to demonstrate how an early assessment of self-competency can be combined with an effective program for preventing maladaptive affective (self-competency) and academic skills. Eleven third graders participated in this study of three interventions. Feedback of multisource data, teacher praise (positive reinforcement), and parental support were used with students selected from sources derived from the Barclay Classroom Climate Inventory (BCCI). The data from these selected students were analyzed by the Mann-Whitney U one-tailed test. Results showed that the interventions improved students' self-competency, raised their group nominations, and changed their attitudes toward school. (Author/CS)
