Abstract

Pairs of classroom observers rated 909 junior high school students on 24 scales. Cluster analysis was used to identify four syndromes of classroom behavior: good students, outgoing, rebellious, and withdrawn. These groups were compared with regard to sex and ethnic group composition, academic achievement, attitudes toward teachers, and 25 low-inference variables obtained from the classroom observations. The same four pupil types were identified in a sample of 416 second grade pupils who were rated with a similar 11-item istrument by different observers.
