Building Roads for Students’ Success
To what extent are individual, class, and school factors associated with successful academic outcomes for students? How do the weightings of those factors vary as a function of student background, grade level, school context, geography (e.g., inner city-urban, suburban, rural)? Do current EQAO data and high school Indicator data provide enough evidence to build a predictive model of student success? What is the fit between predictive models of student achievement and the School Effectiveness Framework (SEF)? How do teachers perceive the SEF in terms of ensuring success for all students? What is the relationship between factors that predict success and instructional practices described through implementation of the SEF?
