Gender Bias in Teacher Identification and Referral of Learning Disabilities

Chelsea Lewis - University of Westminster, UK.

Time to complete - 15 minutes.

This research is going to investigate why some children are more likely to be referred for special educational support than others. The only criteria to participate is to be currently employed as a teacher in a primary or secondary school.

This study is split into 2 parts. Part 1 consists only of a short background questionnaire which should take approximately 3 minutes to complete. Part 2 consists of 8 short descriptions (150 words each) of a child’s behaviour which you will be asked to rate using a shortened version of the Child Behaviour Checklist (Teachers Report) which you may already be familiar with. This should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
