Research shows that teachers who raise student test scores also improve long-term outcomes for their students. A new study finds that long-term outcomes for students are even more strongly predicted by student behaviors than they are by student test scores. And the teachers who are good at improving student behaviors are not necessarily the same teachers who are good at raising student test scores.

The author of the new study, C. Kirabo Jackson, professor of human development and social policy at Northwestern University, discusses his findings with EdNext editor-in-chief Marty West. The study, “The Full Measure of a Teacher: Using value-added to assess effects on student behavior,” will appear in the Winter 2019 issue of Education Next and is now available online.

The EdNext Podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher and here every Wednesday.
