¶ … Student Achievement on the Elementary Level

One of the most helpful journals in this regard has been the Teacher's College Board. This online periodical is highly searchable and very-user friendly. It also appears to have a tremendous number of articles written from the perspective of teachers who are currently teaching and thus running into common problems or obstacles of student development and achievement.

Furthermore, there appear to be a higher caliber of conclusions drawn from these articles with findings which point to concrete advice for teachers currently teaching and the challenges they face along with how to meet them.

Thus, because my research plans to look at the wide range of factors which can impact a student's ability to achieve, it really is ideal that I focus on the American Educational Research Journal. According to the periodical: "The American Educational Research Journal publishes original empirical and theoretical studies and analyses in education that constitute significant contributions to the understanding and/or improvement of educational processes and outcomes. The Social and Institutional Analysis section focuses on significant political, cultural, social, economic, and organizational issues in education, and the Teaching, Learning, and Human Development section explores the processes and outcomes of teaching, learning, and human development…

Causes of Low Student Achievement Does the grading system accurately measure how well a student is learning? This question itself implies that the grading system used by many teachers cannot be fully accurate in assessing what a given student has learned. Psychology Professor James D.

Raising Student Achievement in a High Need School To me, the major issue that people consistently fail to adequately address when discussing raising achievement in a high need school is the generational impact of educational disparity.
