REL Report: Teacher Influence on Student Success in an Online Biology Course

Florida Virtual School administrators have been studying ways to improve student performance by identifying successful instructional practices. Their goal is to identify teachers with effective practices that other teachers might incorporate into their instruction.

As part of that initiative, REL Southeast conducted a study of teacher influences on student outcomes. The study examined three student outcomes for segment 1 (equivalent to a semester in an in-person school) of an asynchronous biology course offered by Florida Virtual School: the segment completion rate, score on the end-of-segment exam, and time taken to complete the segment. Student end-of-segment exam scores varied only slightly across teachers, teachers had somewhat more influence on segment completion rates, and teachers had the greatest influence on time to completion. As a result, students with the highest- and lowest-ranked teachers had notable differences in their time to completion and minor differences in completion rates and exam scores.
