Multiple Student Outcomes

Recent studies documenting that teachers are the most important school-based factor in driving student achievement base their analyses purely on student test scores. However, the purposes of schooling are much broader and multi-dimensional – schools should not only improve students’ numeracy and literacy skills but promote cognitive development in a range of areas and support students social-emotional development. This strand interfaces with Annenberg’s Center on Student Well-Being to explore how educators in schools influence student development more broadly.
