Positive correlations that have emerged thus far include the following.
- "Our class stays busy and doesn’t waste time,” tended to be led by teachers with high value-added scores.
- The same was true for students who ranked the following statement high, “In this class, we learn to correct our mistakes.”
- “My teacher has several good ways to explain each topic that we cover in this class,” also had a high correlation.
- Teachers whose students agreed with the statement, “We spend a lot of time in this class practicing for the state test,” tended to make smaller gains on those exams than other teachers.
What questions should we be asking our students to learn what they see as teacher behaviors that influence their learning?
