Classroom and Developmental Differences in a Path Model of Teacher Expectancy Effects.
Kuklinski, Margaret R.; Weinstein, Rhona S.
Child Development, v72 n5 p1554-78 Sep-Oct 2001
Evaluated a path model of teacher expectancy effects in 376 first- through fifth-grade urban children. Found that classroom environment and developmental differences moderated the strength of teacher expectancy effects on students' year-end achievement. Results suggested that teacher expectations may tend to magnify achievement differences in the early grades, but serve to sustain them in later grades. (Author/KB)
