PISA provides peek at how attendance, school climate may affect achievement
from Education Week
Both a growing body of research and intuition suggest that non-academic factors like school climate, attendance and classroom management can affect a student's academic achievement. Student survey results that accompany the newest Program for International Student Assessment results, released on Tuesday, provide international data to show how those factors correlate with student test scores. Unsurprisingly, PISA results show that poor attendance and a distracting learning environment correlate with lower test scores in nearly every country that participates in the exam.
