What Is the #1 Factor Influencing Student Achievement?–Collective Teacher Efficacy! Collective teacher efficacy refers to the “collective self-perception that teachers in a given school make an educational difference to their students over and above the educational impact of their homes and communities” (Tschannen-Moran & Barr, 2004, p. 190) We will investigate the newest research findings on Collective Teacher Efficacy and its impact on student learning. John Hattie and associates have now moved Collective Teacher Efficacy to the top of the list for effect size (1.57) on influencing learning in a school. This series will be an interactive study about how educators can work together to build a school where Collective Teacher Efficacy comes alive.
