Weinstein, Rhona S. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This special issue marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark Pygmalion experiment (Rosenthal & Jacobson, 1968). It offers contributions from across the globe, attesting to universal features of teacher expectancy effects. Reviews of this history underscore controversy, advances, and few intervention studies. Empirical studies emphasise…

Hornstra, Lisette; Stroet, Kim; van Eijden, Eva; Goudsblom, Jeannette; Roskamp, Claire – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Previous research has shown that teachers differentiate their behaviour based on their expectations of students. Self-determination theory (SDT) makes explicit how teacher behaviour relates to students' motivation and engagement, namely, via need-supportive teaching. In the present study, we combined both research traditions and examined…

Gentrup, Sarah; Rjosk, Camilla – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This study examined the role of teacher expectations in the emerging gender gaps in reading and mathematics in the first year of schooling. Therefore, we first investigated whether boys and girls differ in their vulnerability to teacher expectancy effects. Second, we analysed whether gender-specific effects of teacher expectations contribute to…

Pit-ten Cate, Ineke M.; Glock, Sabine – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Male students with immigrant backgrounds are disproportionally referred for special educational support outside regular classrooms or schools, which may reflect differential teachers' expectations concerning the academic achievement of students based on sociodemographic characteristics. Although research has indicated differential teachers'…

Agirdag, Orhan – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Previous studies have shown that schools' socioeconomic-status (SES) composition has an impact on the academic performance of pupils. Less attention has been given to the explanation of this effect. This study examined whether the teachability culture among the school staff (teachers' collective beliefs about how teachable their pupils are)…

Good, Thomas L.; Sterzinger, Natasha; Lavigne, Alyson – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This article reviews Rosenthal and Jacobson's (1968) seminal study, "Pygmalion in the Classroom" (PC). We consider what preceded PC, the actual study, immediate criticisms of it, Rosenthal's reactions to the criticism, and, importantly, the research that followed PC from 1968 to roughly 1990. Despite critical criticisms of it, we…

de Boer, Hester; Timmermans, Anneke C.; van der Werf, Margaretha P. C. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This study provides a systematic review of the effects of 19 teacher expectation interventions. Prior research on teacher expectations primarily focussed on correlational relationships with student and teacher characteristics, leaving open the questions of whether it is possible to raise teacher expectations and to prevent (too) low expectations…

Li, Zheng; Rubie-Davies, Christine M. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This study was designed to investigate the bases of teacher expectations in higher education. The first author interviewed 20 university teachers from an English-as-a-foreign-language course, exploring their expectations for the first-year undergraduates in their classes. The grounded theory method was adopted to analyse the data that had been…

Rubie-Davies, Christine M.; Watson, Penelope W. St J.; Flint, Annaline; Garrett, Lynda; McDonald, Lyn – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Over the past 50 years, research has shown that teacher expectations can influence student outcomes. Many studies have examined within-year effects. There is, however, a paucity of research that has investigated the stability of teachers' expectations across a single year, and there are no studies that have examined stability beyond 1 year. The…

Timmermans, Anneke C.; Rubie-Davies, Christine M. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Previous studies have indicated that, although some teachers have substantial expectation effects on student outcomes, the effects for most teachers are only small. Furthermore, teacher expectations are associated with key pedagogical differences related to teacher beliefs about providing instruction and support for learning. The aim of this study…

Wang, Shengnan; Rubie-Davies, Christine M.; Meissel, Kane – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This review aimed to illustrate the development in the teacher expectation literature and discuss the major avenues of research in the teacher expectation field from 1989 to 2018. Four analytical themes emerged from a narrative synthesis based on a systematic literature search: (1) influential factors on teacher expectations; (2) mediation…

Thurlings, Marieke; den Brok, Perry – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
The aim of this review in the form of a realist synthesis is to understand what makes peer (student) teacher learning activities effective. Three types of peer learning were explored: collaborative, coaching, and assessment activities. Hypotheses were developed and tested against a set of 63 studies. These hypotheses indicated what mechanisms…

Jacobs, Babs; Wolbers, Maarten H. J. – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
This article examines the extent to which parental socioeconomic status (SES) affects the likelihood of a child becoming a top-performing student, offering an international perspective by reporting this relationship in 31 developed countries. The impact of 3 important educational system characteristics (differentiation in terms of early tracking,…

Wijsman, Lindy A.; Saab, Nadira; Warrens, Matthijs J.; van Driel, Jan H.; Westenberg, P. Michiel – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Students in secondary education inevitably favour some subjects more than other subjects. This appraisal may affect how motivation relates to performance in these subjects. Whereas autonomous motivation is generally linked to positive school outcomes, the effect of controlled motivation is less clear. This study specifically focused on the…

Simpson, Adrian – Educational Research and Evaluation, 2018
Ainsworth et al.'s paper "Sources of Bias in Outcome Assessment in Randomised Controlled Trials: A Case Study" examines alternative accounts for a large difference in effect size between 2 outcomes in the same intervention evaluation. It argues that the probable explanation relates to masking: Only one outcome measure was administered by…
