Collective Teacher Efficacy


Collective teacher efficacy is now ranked as the most powerful influence on student achievement in the Visible Learning research. It is the belief that together teachers can positively impact student learning. When efficacy is high, teachers show greater persistence and are more likely to try new teaching approaches. Learn how to create the conditions for collective teacher efficacy and how you can yield over three years of student growth in one school year.
