ABSTRACT
Education majors and experienced teachers identified factors that they believed contributed to a successfully managed classroom and reported a percentage for the perceived influence of each factor. The participants also identified components (and their values) perceived to comprise the teacher's influence. The education majors attributed 41% of the influence for a successfully managed classroom to the teacher, whereas the teachers attributed 49% of the influence to themselves. Overall, the education majors and teachers attributed the greatest amount of a teacher's influence to the way in which the teacher presented information and interacted with students.
