Observer Reactivity in an Educational Setting.
Jason, Leonard A.
This study investigates the reactive effects of observers on interactions between teachers (undergraduates and mothers) and toddlers in a preventive educational program. Findings indicate that the presence of an observer differentially affects interactional patterns in the home. More specifically, undergraduates and toddlers are relatively unaffected by an observer, whereas mothers evidence dramatic reactive effects. (Author)
