The Effect of Congruent Teacher-Student Characteristics on Instructional Outcomes
Rich, H. Lyndall; Bush, Andrew J.
American Educational Research Journal, 15, 3, 451-7, Sum 78
Teachers with direct and indirect teaching styles were paired with students who were high or low on social-emotional development, to create congruent and incongruent matches. Congruency was consistently related to instructional outcome with the effect strongest for student affect, followed by achievement, and then attention to task. Findings support Hunt's person-environment congruency theory. (Author/CP)
