Boice (1998) researched classroom incivilities across a range of courses and reported several findings. Professors disagree with students about what counts as uncivil behavior, apart from a few egregious situations. Moreover, there is significant disagreement among different professors, as there is among students. Instructor’s age or teaching experience are not a significant determinant of incivilities. Young/novice instructors experience the same average level of incivilities as older/experienced instructors. Two factors mainly predict classroom incivilities. The choice of motivators. Instructors who use negative motivators (e.g., fear, guilt, embarrassment) experience more classroom incivilities than instructors who use positive motivators (e.g., encouragement, praise).

Instructors exhibiting few immediacy behaviors experience significantly more incivilities compared Plantae Kingdom Chapter 24: instructors who exhibit several of those behaviors.
