A Comparative Assessment of Student Classroom Behaviors and Learning Environment in Classes of a High Control and a Low Control Teacher through Student Perceptions and Class Observations.
Turanli, Adem Sultan; Yildirim, Ali
This study was designed to investigate the relationship between teachers' orientations to classroom management and their students' classroom behaviors and the learning environment. Two teachers with different orientations (non-interventionist and interventionist) to classroom management were selected, and their 91 students were administered the Student Classroom Behaviors and Learning Environment Questionnaire. The questionnaire included two scales: student classroom behaviors (12 items) and learning environment (9 items). The students were also administered an opinionnaire, and a student sample was interviewed for further data. The classes of the two teachers were observed to gather more in-depth data on how the students behaved and what sort of learning environment was created in their classes. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. The analysis indicated that student behaviors and the learning environment in the classes of the two teachers with different orientations differed significantly on both scales.
