Teacher Evaluation Bias toward LD Children--Attenuating Effects of the Classroom Ecology.
Dukes, Melinda; Saudargas, Richard A.
Learning Disability Quarterly, v12 n2 p126-32 Spr 1989
The study examined whether classroom context cues in videotapes showing a nonhandicapped and a learning disability expectancy would affect evaluation bias of 80 elementary-school teachers. Results suggest that teachers hold initial biases about the behavior of learning-disabled students but take into account the classroom context when rating actual behavior. (Author/DB)
