High-Quality Early Childhood Assessment: Learning From States’ Use of Kindergarten Entry Assessments
This report provides an overview of the wide range of factors that impact adolescent learners, including physiological and cognitive components. It is one of a series of reports highlighting principles of adolescent learning and development as well as key findings important in maximizing student achievement, especially in those populations that have been historically underserved in education. These principles were developed by the Alliance for Excellent Education based on a review of research and were endorsed by a team of researchers, identified in the appendices. Additional reports in the series focus on a broad range of adolescent research including the impact of risk-taking, relationships and culture as well as the effects of identity and empowerment on student learning.
