Studies you need to refer to: ROSENTHAL and JACOBSEN (1968)tested self fulfilling prophecy (education module) and the impact of teachers labelling. This has been criticised for failing to recognise many other factors which could have affected their validity, as well as ethical issues such as the fact that teachers were lied to and the harm of progress for students. SISSONS (1971)conducted an experiment in public by assessing people’s point of views on social class through studying their actions. This was criticised as it had low generalisability because it is almost impossible to use the same people over and over again with the same qualities such as age, gender etc.
