Research on National Board Certification
In numerous studies National Board Certified Teachers have been shown to positively impact student achievement, and those impacts are even greater for low-income students. The process of certifying has also been shown to aid in teacher retention, develop teacher leaders, and build communities of learners pursuing excellence in their teaching practice.
The National Board Resource Center has partnered with Stanford's Center for Opportunity Policy in Education to research the impact of National Board Certification. You can find more information on these studies linked below:

Additional research on the effects of National Board Certification in a variety of context can be found through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
