What Research Says About Improving Student Performance. A Manual for Administrators.
Heim, John J.
Aimed at educational decisionmakers, this report is intended to help close the research-implementation gap by summarizing the results of an extensive review of educational research on variables related to student performance and resource allocation decisions at the school district level. The trends in research findings about factors related to student achievement are used to address 10 important issues in education. Some of these issues are: (1) the importance of schooling; (2) student/school characteristics systematically related to student achievement; (3) mixing students from different socioeconomic backgrounds to improve achievement levels of the disadvantaged; (4) relationship of development in the cognitive and noncognitive domains; (5) difference that teacher-related factors make on cognitive and noncognitive development; (6) the impact of school administrators and supervisors on student development; and (7) financial measures as indications of school quality. The document discusses how the study results are summarized and summarizes and interprets the study findings. A 97-item bibliography lists the studies reviewed. (Author/DN)
