Definition

In the educational context, the Pygmalion effect, also called the Rosenthal effect, refers to an effect whereby greater expectations from teachers, peers, and other people of individual learners lead to better performance by those individuals. Conversely, it might indicate that reduced expectations lead to poorer performance.
