What Can I Say After I Say LD?
Sutherland, John H.; And Others
Forty fourth grade children participated in an investigation of the extent to which ratings of a peer would be differentially affected by categorical labels and assigned attributes. After viewing a videotape, Ss were assigned to one of four treatment groups (label and attribute conditions). Results from a scale requesting opinions about the child on the videotape indicated that positive attributes (humor, sports ability) produced favorable peer ratings when compared to neutral ones. No effects were observed relative to differential ratings of a child as a function of a special education label assigned to him. (Author/CL)
