Title: A Contextual Examination of the Relationships between Teacher Quality Factors and Student Achievement
Center: NCES Year: 2005
Principal Investigator: Englert, Kerry Awardee: Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL)
Program: NAEP Secondary Analysis Grants      [Program Details]
Description: Purpose: This project is developing a model of the relationship between teacher characteristics and student achievement. Model development will involve the exploration of three research questions: (1) which characteristics of highly qualified teachers are associated with student achievement in mathematics; (2) how does the presence of a high-quality teacher relate to the levels of achievement for traditionally low performing students; and (3) which groups of students are most likely to have access to teachers exhibiting the characteristics associated with higher achievement?
