Open Access Graduate Research Paper
One can hardly begin research in the area of teacher expectations without beginning with Pygmalion in the Classroom, Rosenthal and Jacobson's 1968 study at the Oak School. Although debate continues as to the significance of the results it is important to note the innovations that this research generated. The education profession has been sensitized to the idea that teacher expectations may influence student performance. Research continues that may validate or disprove this notion. Good (1987) summarized much of the current research. In this 1987 research review he looked at self-fulfilling prophecy, how teachers formed expectations and several models for indirect mediation of expectation effects.
