    The Behavioural Approach in Schools: A Time for Caution Revisited.Alex Harrop & Jeremy Swinson - 2007 - Educational Studies 33 (1):41-52.
    This paper takes as its starting point an examination of the current status of some of the concerns that were raised in the mid?1980s about methodological problems faced by educational researchers using the behavioural approach in schools. These concerns included the measurement of agreement between observers, the interpretation of raw data extracted, the potential influences of observers and the inherent properties of research designs. Subsequently, some more wide?ranging concerns are considered, in particular the kinds of behaviour selected for treatment, the (...)

    An Examination of the Effects of a Short Course Aimed at Enabling Teachers in Infant, Junior and Secondary Schools to Alter the Verbal Feedback Given to Their Pupils.Jeremy Swinson & Alex Harrop - 2005 - Educational Studies 31 (2):115-129.
    Nineteen teachers took part in a brief, one session, in?service course in which they were trained in behavioural techniques with the main aim of helping them increase their rates of approval contingent upon required behaviours from their pupils and to decrease their rates of disapproval. Subsidiary aims were that the teachers would be enabled to alter the balance of approval/disapproval given to academic and social behaviours, to increase the rate of approval given to group behaviours, to increase the rate of (...)

    Teachers' Questions in the Infant, Junior and Secondary School.Alex Harrop & Jeremy Swinson - 2003 - Educational Studies 29 (1):49-57.
    Ten teachers in infant schools, 10 in junior schools and 10 in secondary schools had their teaching recorded. Subsequent analysis was made of the teachers' use of questions categorised as of fact, closed solution, open solution, task supervision and routine. When the first two categories were combined, the results for the junior schools were very similar to those reported by Galton and his colleagues in 1980 and 1999. Moreover, the results for both the infant and secondary schools differed very little (...)

    Teacher Talk Directed to Boys and Girls and its Relationship to Their Behaviour.Jeremy Swinson & Alex Harrop - 2009 - Educational Studies 35 (5):515-524.
    There have been a number of investigations into the extent to which teachers in the primary school interact within their classrooms with boys and girls and the results of these investigations have differed considerably, some showing boys receiving more interaction than girls and others showing no differences. The aim of this investigation was to try and clarify matters by examining specific categories of teacher verbal behaviour and by including a measure of the quantity and pattern of the off?task behaviour of (...)

    Comparison of Teacher Talk Directed to Boys and Girls and its Relationship to Their Behaviour in Secondary and Primary Schools.Alex Harrop & Jeremy Swinson - 2011 - Educational Studies 37 (1):115-125.
    There have been a number of earlier investigations, using differing methodologies, into the extent to which teachers in the secondary school interact with boys and girls and the results have suggested an imbalance in the teachers? verbal behaviour towards the genders that is quite similar to the imbalance found in teachers? behaviour in the primary school. The main aim of this study was to devise an investigation using the same methodology as that used in a recent primary school investigation in (...)
