School Effectiveness: Eight Variables that Make a Difference.
Stevens, Betty, Ed.
The Michigan Department of Education with assistance from the Educational Testing Service has compiled the results of valid educational research studies on specific topics into a report to be used as a guide for developing effective schools. It is intended for use by practitioners to help bridge the gap between educational researchers and teachers/practitioners. The report is divided into eight sections, each of which defines one variable shown by research to make a difference in pupil achievement. Included within each section are ideas for applying research findings in a school setting as well as a bibliography. The eight variables are (1) principal expectations, (2) teacher expectations, (3) time on task, (4) classroom organization, (5) reinforcement and feedback, (6) tutoring, (7) recitation, and (8) parental involvement.
