Effects of Students' Race, Physical Attractiveness, and Dialect on Teachers' Evaluations
DeMeis, Debra Kanai; Turner, Ralph R.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, 3, 1, 77-86, Jan 78
Based on taped samples of the students' speech, 68 white elementary school teachers rated subjects on personality, quality of response, and current and future academic abilities. Black students, Black English-speaking students and unattractive students were rated consistently lower. Academic failure may result from evaluations based on race and dialect, rather than actual performance. (Author/CP)
