Students' Perceptions of Classroom Instructional Environments in the Context of "Universal Design for Learning"
Abell, Michael M.; Jung, Eunjoo; Taylor, Matthew
Learning Environments Research, v14 n2 p171-185 Jul 2011
Using a sample of 867 students in Grades 5-12, the present study investigated whether students' perceptions toward the instructional environment in classrooms that employed Universal Design for Learning differed by school grade level and teacher gender. High-school students in the study showed higher perception scores than upper-elementary or middle-school students in the personalisation and participation aspect of the classroom environment. The results for teacher gender indicated that students in the study perceived a more personalised classroom environment with female teachers than with male teachers. Policy implications and methodological considerations are provided for future study.
