Recent Advances in Our Understanding of School Effects Research.
Cohen, Michael
A critique of research attempting to determine student achievement by identifying the characteristics and resources of schools is offered. It is pointed out that frequently the academic achievement of students is related to the socioeconomic status of the general student population of the school. The suggestion is made that future research should focus largely, though not exclusively, on the social organization of the classroom. Research designed to provide better understanding of the interrelationships in the classroom, grouping practices, reward structures, authority and control structures, the formation and influence of peer groups, and the organization and allocation of time is claimed to be most effective in identifying the relationship between school influence and student achievement.
