The Accuracy of Students' Perceptions of Themselves and Their Classroom. Report No. 5082.
Clements, Richard O.; And Others
A student interview was administered to second grade students to determine how accurately they perceived their class environment. Three areas investigated were differential treatment of students by the teacher, the organization and management of the classroom, and students' self-rated ability. Ethnographic reports, teacher interviews and student outcome data were used to verify the students' responses. The students accurately reported differential teacher behavior and the organization and management of the classroom, but inconsistencies were found between the students' self-rated ability and the ability level of their reading groups.
