Summary

While many differences in student achievement are due to the students themselves -- their home life, prior knowledge, and motivation -- the good news is that there's a lot that schools and teachers can do to improve student achievement . . . if they follow the direction provided in this book.

Applying 35 years of research, author Robert J. Marzano illuminates the factors that influence student academic achievement. Using the book's research-based survey tools and action steps, you can identify your school's strengths and weaknesses, prioritize your options, and implement a clear plan for improvement. In every chapter, answers to many once-elusive questions become crystal clear:

  • Which instructional strategies really work
  • Why data is a critical component to school improvement
  • How important collegiality and professional development are
  • What types of parental and community involvement make a difference
  • Discover how any school can operate at advanced levels of effectiveness.
