Perceptual Influence of Psychoeducational Reports.
Schwartz, Neil H.; Wilkinson, William K.
Psychology in the Schools, v24 n2 p127-35 Apr 1987
Teachers read fictitious psychoeducational reports that were consistent, inconsistent, or absent with respect to a child's diagnostic label, then cumulative folders, then the report again. Their perceptions of child's characteristics changed in an adaptive direction for general adjustment, academic skill, and learning approach, and negatively for intellectual capacity. Type of diagnostic label was an important variable in influencing perception. (Author/KS)
