Types of Classroom Management and its Evaluation

  • Markus P. Neuenschwander


Classroom teacher management behavior depends on both the class content level and the social level. To establish social order in classrooms teachers set rules and behave adaptively and flexibly. On both dimensions of classroom management we described four types: sovereign, rule guided, situation specific and desorganized classroom management. These types were examined by a questionnaire study with 183 teachers and 454 students from 6th grade. The sovereign management conditions high competences and high educational and relation oriented values. Multilevel analyses confirmed the influence of classroom management on student perceptions of their teachers and on student achievement in math.
