Through National Board Certification, teachers demonstrate that their teaching meets the profession’s standards for accomplished practice through a rigorous, peer-reviewed and performance-based process, similar to professional certification in fields such as medicine. In achieving Board certification, teachers prove their ability to advance student learning and achievement

Students taught by Board-certified teachers learn more than students

taught by other teachers.

Estimates of the increase in learning are on the order of an additional one to two months of instruction.

The positive impact of having a Board-certified teacher (NBCT) is even greater for minority and low- income students.1 This improvement in student outcomes is mirrored by NBCTs achieving stronger results on leading measures of teacher effectiveness, including robust classroom observations and value-added scores. The compelling research on the effectiveness of Board-certified teachers is particularly noteworthy when compared to the lack of consistent research on the effectiveness of teachers with master’s degrees.
