  • Linking Climate Survey Results and Academic Achievement - This report uses regression analysis - a method for predicting whether changes in one student characteristic or outcomes cause changes in another - to demonstrate that students who experience a more positive school climate are likely to have better achievement results. We find that elementary and middle school students with more positive perceptions of climate are more likely to improve their MAP scores and acquire proficiency in reading and math, holding demographics, school, elementary homeroom, and prior MAP scores constant.  High school students with more positive perceptions of climate are likely to have higher GPAs and fewer course failures, holding demographics, school, and prior GPA/course failures constant.  These results show us that the ways we measure school climate are useful and informative, and that if we can improve perceptions of school climate, we likely will see improvements in academic measures.
