The Peabody Mathematics Readiness Test: Investigations with Mentally Retarded Children. (B) PMRT and Teacher Ratings.
Thurman, Richard L.
Investigated with 737 first grade students and 175 educable mentally retarded children (CA=6 to 18, MA=6 to 7 years) in special classrooms were the differences found in teacher's ratings of their students' mathematical abilities with regard to expectancy bias. Scores on the Peabody Mathematics Readiness Test were compared with ratings given by 34 first grade and 45 special education teachers. The comparative results indicated that teachers of the mentally retarded Ss consistently rated their students lower on mathematical abilities than their first grade counterparts. (IM)
