Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Management
  • Higher education

Brian A. Jacob spends much of his time researching Mathematics education, Academic achievement, Student achievement, Test and Standardized test. Brian A. Jacob has included themes like Student's t-test and Teacher quality in his Mathematics education study. His Academic achievement research includes elements of Panel data, Graduation, Medical education, Policy analysis and Poverty.

He combines subjects such as Labour economics and Public housing with his study of Student achievement. His study in Test is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both No child left behind, Revenue and Reading. His Standardized test study combines topics in areas such as Test score, Minor and Cheating.

His most cited work include:

  • Rotten Apples: An Investigation of the Prevalence and Predictors of Teacher Cheating (608 citations)
  • Accountability, incentives and behavior: the impact of high-stakes testing in the Chicago Public Schools (500 citations)
  • REMEDIAL EDUCATION AND STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT: A REGRESSION-DISCONTINUITY ANALYSIS (383 citations)
