International Guide to Student Achievement

Edited by:


July 2015 | 528 pages | Corwin

Forget what you “should do” and go with what works best for student achievement

There are many, often competing, claims about how to enhance student achievement, raising the question of “What works?” and “What works best?” The International Guide to Student Achievement brings together and critically examines the major influences shaping student achievement around the world. World renowned bestselling authors, John Hattie and Eric M. Anderman have invited an international group of scholars to write brief, empirically supported articles that examine predictors of academic achievement across a variety of topics that shape academic achievement. In this empirical guide to student achievement, readers will:

  • Understand achievement from elementary to adolescence to higher education
  • Know how students’ and their home environments influence achievement
  • Understand key influences that come from within schools, from classrooms to curriculum
  • Be inspired to apply what works for them to classrooms and curriculum
