An Annotated Bibliography of the Literature Dealing With the Contributing Factors of Teacher Expectations on Student Performance.
Stegemiller, H. Andrew
This paper reviews recent literature regarding the impact of teacher expectations on student performance. The first section reviews recent literature with respect to teacher expectations in which teacher characteristics were viewed as the dependent variable in the interaction. The focus of the second section is to review recent literature where the characteristics of the student were viewed as the dependent variable. The third section reviews research that investigated the mediating processes between teacher and student that contribute to teacher expectations and student performance. There was apparent agreement that teachers' predictions of test scores tended to be overestimated for high achievers and underestimated for low achievers. Student characteristics contributing to expectation included social class, attractiveness, ethnicity and perhaps gender. Models generally suggested that teachers' expectations are communicated to students through differential teacher treatment. (JD)
