Blazar, David; Kraft, Matthew A. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2017
Research has focused predominantly on how teachers affect students' achievement on standardized tests despite evidence that a broad range of attitudes and behaviors are equally important to their long-term success. We find that upper-elementary teachers have large effects on self-reported measures of students' self-efficacy in math, and happiness…
