Released November 2012. In this report, Hanover Research examines the role of expectations, both those of teachers and of students, on academic outcomes of student learning. The research has examined how expectations should be framed and communicated in order to maximize achievement and drive each student, no matter the caliber of his or her starting point, to achieve beyond where he or she began. This brief report highlights the role that expectations play in student learning, achievement, and goal-setting, with an emphasis on the work of John Hattie and Carol Dweck.
