The Effects of Teachers' Verbal Behaviors on Kindergartners' Perceptions of Competence.
Simonson, Tracy A.; Strein, William
Psychology in the Schools, v34 n4 p363-71 Oct 1997
Examines the relationship between kindergartners' (N=168) perceptions of competence and teacher comments. Results indicate that teachers did not more frequently praise students who had higher perceptions of competence than students with lower perceptions. No relationship emerged concerning the effects of teacher praise or criticism on changes in kindergartners' perceptions of competence. (RJM)
