Abstract

The present study examined students' facial attractiveness and school uniform tidiness in developing the student-teachers' expectations of their academic performances. The researcher administered a questionnaire of 10 items on a sample that consisted of 135 student-teachers at the college of education in Kuwait University after exposing them to pictures of four school students with diversified traits of attractiveness and school uniform tidiness. The results showed that all the student-teachers' sample tends to form expectations about diverse classroom students based on their level of attractiveness and school uniform tidiness. There were no differences in these expectations between student-teachers of different GPAs. Still, such differences existed between student-teachers groups of fields of specialization. Several recommendations were then directed & brought to the Ministry of Education and teacher preparation program personnel's attention.
