A system of interaction analysis has been developed, from the original work of Lauren Resnick, in which nine categories of coding are used to analyse the utterances of Infant teachers working in informal patterns of classroom organisation.

It has been shown that infant teachers, using cassette tape recordings, can effectively and quickly use this coding system themselves to study their classroom talk. Some preliminary work has also been carried out in developing guidelines with which teachers can evaluate their classroom performance using this instrument.

Particular emphasis has been placed on the differences between long and short interactions.
