How teachers’ self-fulfilling prophecies, known as The Pygmalion Effect, influence students’ success Most perceptions of students’ educational success are focussed on the students’ personal qualities (perseverance, self-efficacy, work ethic, goal setting, grit, resilience, intelligence, social and emotional stability, enthusiasm, creativity etc.) but there are other factors at play in this recipe. In our paper on The Matthew Effect (Boyd & MacNeill, 2020), the authors examined how various external factors enhanced some students’ educational options. Interestingly, teachers’ beliefs in the form of self-fulfilling prophecies, which have been labelled The Pygmalion Effect, can also be a game changer in selected students’ educational options.
