Self reports of classroom behavior given by second- and third-qrade teachers in questionnaires are compared to process measures of the same behaviors collected by classroom observers visiting in these teachers' classrooms. The comparisons reveal a generalized pattern of poor accuracy on the part of the teachers, although there were some exceptions for certain variables. In general, accuracy seemed to be much more related to the degree to which the teacher behavior in question is stressed in teacher education programs than it was related to the degree to which a teacher was successful in producing student learning gains. That is, highly successful teachers were not much more accurate in reporting their classroom behavior than were less successful teachers. (Author)
