Effects of Evaluative vs. Co-Constructive Interactions on Learning in Physics
Toczek, Marie-Christine; Morge, Ludovic
European Journal of Psychology of Education, v24 n3 p325-333 Sep 2009
We conducted an experimental study to assess the effects of two physics-learning situations that differed in the type of teacher-student interactions that took place: evaluative or co-constructive. As found in various studies on physics teaching and social psychology, the results showed that co-constructive interactions generated a more effective learning context for students than evaluative ones did.
