Low-Inference Verbal Behaviors Related to Teacher Clarity.
Smith, Lyle R.; Land, Michael L.
Journal of Classroom Interaction, v17 n1 p37-42 Win 1981
Two low-inference teacher clarity variables, vagueness terms and mazes, are discussed in terms of their effect on student achievement and on student perception of lesson effectiveness. Results indicate that high frequencies of teacher vagueness terms inhibit student achievement and cause students to perceive the lesson as ineffective. (Authors/JN)
