  23. Beth Cerulo NBCT 2002Social Studies History Adolescence and Young AdulthoodMillcreek Township School DistrictErie County “National Board Certification is a process that continues long after official certification is granted. It has enhanced the way I view my responsibilities as a teacher by helping me to analyze and focus on how each teaching decision I make impacts student learning. Using my own classroom practice makes this process relevant and rewarding.” Center for Teaching Excellence August 16, 2014

  24. (Candidates report that the process takes 200 to 600 hours to complete.) To be successful teachers must examine their skills and knowledge and be willing to take an honest look at their teaching practices to evaluate both strengths and areas for improvement. Most agree that going through the process revolutionized their approach to the challenge of teaching. They became more reflective and improved their practice by making changes that improved student learning. Why Become a NBCT? Center for Teaching Excellence August 16, 2014

  26. Committee on Evaluation of Teacher Certification by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards 2008, 340 page report after Congressionally-mandated 30-month study To evaluate the effectiveness and impact of National Board Certification “Assessing Accomplished Teaching …” Addresses issues: Impact on teachers who obtain, attempt but are unsuccessful, and who do not apply Impact on student achievement Cost-effectiveness National Research Council Center for Teaching Excellence August 16, 2014

  27. Teachers who earn board certification are more effective at improving their students’ achievement than other teachers. improves teacher retention considered a powerful professional development experience School systems vary greatly in the extent to which they recognize and make use of board-certified teachers. The report makes recommendations for the kind of research that is needed to fully evaluate the impact of board certification by the NBPTS. National Research Council Center for Teaching Excellence August 16, 2014

  28. More than 150 studies have examined National Board Certification and the majority (75%) found NBCTs make a significantly measurable impact on teacher performance and student learning, engagement and achievement. Students of NBCTs score 7-15 percentage points higher on year-end tests. More math NBCTs helped their students achieve larger testing gains in 9th and 12th grades than their non-certified colleagues-demonstrating particular benefits among special needs, African-American, and Hispanic students. Students of NBCTs exhibit deeper learning outcomes more frequently than students of non-NBCTs. Research Center for Teaching Excellence August 16, 2014
