Pygmation, Galatea, and the Golem: Investigations of Biased and Unbiased Teachers.
Babad, Elisha Y.; And Others
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n4 p459-74 Aug 1982
This study examined differential expectancy effects as a function of teachers' susceptibility to biasing information and distinctions between positive ("Galatea effects") and negative ("Golem effects") outcomes of teacher expectancies. Patterns of differential, negative expectancy effects were evident not only in teachers' behavior but also in students' actual performance. (Author/BW)
