Teacher Expectations and Specific Judgments: A Small-Scale Study of the Effects of Certain Non-Cognitive Variables on Teachers' Academic Predictions.
Doherty, Jim; Hier, Brian
Educational Review, v40 n3 p333-48 1988
One hundred thirteen elementary students were tested using four standardized instruments; their teachers rated each student on eight bipolar constructs and predicted scores. Results indicate that students who are perceived positively receive higher score predictions, even when academic competence is controlled. Boys seemed to be especially subject to faulty predictions.
