Example text

Some teachers did report that they thought their identified students would improve (seven of 10 Steps in teacher expectation research eighteen), but the only statistically significant effects were for class level – students in some class levels gained more than others. No differences were reported in the teacher behaviour towards the experimental and control groups. Meta-analyses in the expectancy field Spitz (1999) conducted a detailed review of nineteen Pygmalion replications, experimental studies completed between 1966 and 1974 where the manipulation of IQ was investigated.

Although each of these differed in some way from the original study, all reported variations in IQ at retesting. However, none of the experimenters found statistically significant differences between the control and experimental groups. One of the criticisms of the Pygmalion study had been that the mediating processes, the differential interactions of teachers that caused the changes in IQ, had not been documented. Some of the replication attempts by researchers that did not involve Rosenthal attempted to address this gap.

There are many stereotypes about different groups: blondes are dumb, Scottish people are misers, Americans are obese, Asians are good at mathematics, Irish people like to drink and eat potatoes, the French are the best lovers, African Americans are good at basketball, Italians are good cooks, women are moody, men are strong and aggressive, and so on. Stereotyping of groups is something that human beings do, often without consciously thinking about it. Stereotypes provide us with cognitive shortcuts that enable us to organize information about particular groups into small chunks, such that we can interact effectively with people from other groups when we meet them, without having to know too much about them.
