Relationships among Professional Collaboration, Student Learning, and Student Socioeconomic Status
Seay, Bryan L.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Trevecca Nazarene University
Although professional collaboration has achieved popularity as an element of public school reform efforts, most research on its impact is qualitative in nature or limited to small case studies. This research sought to provide a quantitative examination of the relationships among levels of implementation of five characteristics of professional collaboration, student achievement, student learning growth, and school socioeconomic status. The study examined data from 34 elementary schools in one metropolitan school district and found significant correlations indicating negative relationships between two characteristics of collaboration and student achievement scores. These results are possible indications that schools with lower student achievement were most likely to have purposefully developed certain aspects of professional collaboration for organizational improvement.
