Advice can only be useful if they are taken seriously. Apart from that a good teacher, of course, has to be humorous, friendly but not too friendlyand well prepared for the lessons. Are teachers who are effective at raising test-score outcomes equally effective at developing positive attitudes and behaviors in class? We used this survey to construct our three primary outcomes: All three measures are important outcomes of interest to researchers, policymakers, and parents Borghans et al.
Further, these outcomes are predicted by teaching practices most proximal to these measures, thus aligning with theory and providing important face and construct validity to these measures. Finally, we find that teachers are not equally effective at improving all outcomes. Compared to a correlation of 0. Together, these findings add further evidence for the multidimensional nature of teaching and, thus, the need for researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to identify strategies for improving these skills.
In our conclusion, we discuss several ways that policymakers and practitioners may start to do so, including through the design and implementation of teacher evaluation systems, professional development, recruitment, and strategic teacher assignments.
