RESEARCH REFERENCES YOU CAN USE ABOUT NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFICATION -
- Washington State's National Board Certification 2010 one-pager
- National Board Certification is a "transformative experience" for many teachers, and they often apply in the classroom what they learn from the certification process - whether they achieve certification or not. The certification process itself improves teachers' ability to improve student learning. (Lustick and Sykes, 2006; Rotberg, Futrell and Lieberman, 1998 - article excerpt)
- NBCTs create more challenging lessons, demonstrate in-depth knowledge of teaching skills and subject matter, provide better feedback to students and routinely seek educational strategies that better meet students' needs. (Sykes, Anagnostopoulos, Cannata, Chard, Frank, McCrory and Wolfe, 2006)
- 70% of principals surveyed in a Washington study believe certification had a very positive impact in the teacher's ability to make a difference in student learning outcomes. Among NBCTs certified in 2008 and working in challenging schools, 79% indicated the bonus significantly or moderately contributed to their decision to stay. (Plecki, Elfers, St. John, Finster, Emry, Nishida and Harmon. June 2010)
- Students of NBCTs outperform students of non-NBCTs. (National Research Council, 2008; Clotfelter, Ladd and Vigdor, 2007; Cavalluzzo, 2004) The positive effect of NBCTs on student achievement is even greater among minority students. (Goldhaber and Anthony, 2004)
- Students of NBCTs make learning gains equivalent to an extra month in school. (Vandevoort, Beardsley and Berliner, 2004)
