Description The aim of this study is to describe formation and successive progression of teacher’s judgments about individual pupils. To reveal the teacher’s judgment repeated semi-structured interviews with a second grade teacher were used. The fact that the teacher’s judgment about pupils is changing in the course of time is the main result of this case study. The group of pupils judged as excellent gradually decreases during the school year, while the group of average pupils increases. Teacher’s judgments are based primarily on two factors: the way how pupils communicate and their school results. Natural abilities and efforts of the pupils are also considered by a teacher. Based on her judgment, the teacher’s differential behaviour towards individual pupils is formed.
