National Board Certification Successfully Identifies Effective Teachers - This two-page brief summarizes the findings of a study on the effectiveness of National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) certification in identifying teachers who raise student achievement. Findings include: National Board Certified Teachers (1) are more effective at raising student achievement than teachers who pursue, but fail to obtain NBPTS certification; (2) are more effective at raising student achievement outside of the year in which they apply than teachers who do not pursue NBPTS certification; and (3) have a greater impact with younger and low-income students. Questions on the cost effectiveness of NBPTS certification have yet to be resolved. The full report also is available online.
