Example text

1996; Jussim et al. 1998). Jussim and his colleagues reported that teachers were frequently inaccurate in their perceptions of the students who had expended more effort on homework. This had an effect on the grades that students were assigned for their school reports. Teachers made the assumption that the high-achieving students had worked harder and gave them even higher grades than they deserved, whereas Jussim and colleagues’ research showed that the low-achieving students had actually spent more time on homework.

Girls have been described as being better behaved than boys (Phillips 1992). Indeed, when Flynn and Rahbar (1994) found that teachers refer boys to special education twice as frequently as they do girls, when their achievement is similar, they proposed that this might be because boys tend to be more disruptive than girls and, therefore, they are more easily noticed by teachers when they are not doing well. The researchers further argued that this disadvantaged girls, as only those who were severely below average were being noticed by their teachers, and, hence, many were missing out on the opportunity of having special education support.

Hence, the initial differentiation in tasks for the students when in the kindergarten class meant that a gap in achievement had already begun by Grade 1, a gap Rist (1970) claimed was largely due to the initial teacher’s expectations. The same pattern was repeated in Grade 2, whereby students remained in the groups to which they had been assigned in Grade 1. Again, no students moved up to a higher group. By Grade 2, the groups were based on the reading level of the students at the end of Grade 1.
