dc.description.abstract Teacher expectations of students have long been recognized as a form of interpersonal expectations. In this study, we aimed to investigate the interpersonal character of teacher expectations by assessing 1) whether teacher expectations and the teacher-student relationship shared similar antecedents in terms of demographic characteristics of students, and 2) whether the dimensions closeness, conflict, and dependency of the teacher-student relationship were predictive of teacher expectations. Analyses were based on a large sample of 9881 students in 614 classes in the final grade of primary education. The results indicated that teacher expectations - as measured by track recommendations - and the teacher-student relationship were not consistent in antecedents. Student performance, parental education, and closeness were positive predictors of track recommendations, whereas they were negatively associated with conflict and dependency. Ethnicity was positively associated with track recommendations, but negatively with closeness. Furthermore, perceived closeness and conflict were not statistically significantly associated with track recommendations. A negative association was found for perceived dependency with teachers' track recommendations, although the latter association appeared stronger for high performing students. Finally, the results showed that teachers differed in how they weigh the conflict and dependency dimensions when formulating track recommendations, indicating that those teacher perceptions played a stronger role in some of the classes. en
