Martin, Nancy K.; Yin, Zenong; Mayall, Hayley
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Conference of the Southwest Educational Research Association (Austin, TX, February 2006)
This study represents a continuation of research efforts to further refine the Attitudes and Beliefs on Classroom Control (ABCC) Inventory. The purposes of this study were to investigate the: (1) impact of classroom management training on classroom management style; (2) differences in attitudes toward classroom management between novice and experienced teachers; and (3) differences between male and female teachers beliefs toward classroom management. Data were collected on line from a total of 163 participants via the Attitudes and Beliefs on Classroom Control (ABCC) Inventory and a demographic questionnaire. Results revealed significant differences between males and females and between novice and experienced teachers on Instruction Management subscale scores. There were significant differences regarding the People Management subscale scores between novice and experienced teachers, and those with and those without training in classroom management. Implications for future research and practice are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
