Institutional and individual stigmatization are still major barriers for children with disabilities to access education. Teacher attitudes towards inclusive education play a crucial role in this regard, and are shaped by single-case descriptions from mass media or other sources. Building on exemplification theory and priming, two experiments with…

Wilbert, Jurgen; Grunke, Matthias – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2010
Although there is an ongoing debate about which achievement feedback is most useful, the majority of researchers agree that social comparisons and a focus on competition are inappropriate for students with learning disabilities and otherwise academically-challenged students. They are highly at-risk to be unfavorably influenced by inappropriate…

Wilbert, Jurgen; Grosche, Michael; Gerdes, Heike – Learning Disabilities: A Contemporary Journal, 2010
The evaluative feedback teachers provide to learners may reference (a) individual learning progress (individual feedback), (b) social comparisons (social feedback), or (c) task criteria (criterial feedback). Various models have been proposed to explain the effects various forms of feedback have on learning and motivation with partly contradictory…
