School Effectiveness: Overview of the Research.
Everson, Susan T.
An overview is presented of school effectiveness research which has identified characteristics of academically successful schools. The research reviewed has reexamined such things as the way educators manage time, assign students, define curriculum, determine class size, organize schools, and assess achievement. This report focuses upon three critical areas in the school function: teaching, curriculum and assessment, and building level or school level management. In considering effective teaching, emphasis is placed upon the teacher's management of academic learning time and diagnosing student learning problems and meeting instructional needs. The second element of schooling considered is the relationship of testing to the curriculum. The third element examined is the relationship between building level management and school effectiveness. The findings of research studies on school climate, leadership quality, teacher expectation, school monitoring systems, and consensus on academic goals in schools are discussed. (JD)
