Objective observations of 22 classes across a variety of disciplines call into question Goldstein and Benassi's (1994) self report data suggesting that teacher self-disclosure may increase student participation. We found no relation between teacher self-disclosure and several measures of student participation, but self-disclosure did relate to other teacher behaviors. Class structure was a much more important determinant of student participation.
