Abstract: Checklists for Educators describes a learners’ view (ALV) of ways for all learners to learn all lessons. Together these checklists reduce risks of Wish List Lessons that some people learn and others do not.


FROM A LEARNERS’ VIEW (ALV), checklists serve as reminders of choices educators make to increase the likelihood that lessons will accelerate, increase, and deepen (AID) learning. Each checklist is grounded in experimental behavioral and social science research. Items on these lists originate in and extend the same methods beyond their reported origin

Experimental scientists have also documented that these ways have AIDed learning in laboratories, classrooms, homes, clinics, and work settings.

You may use these checklists with more confidence than chance, that is, more than by flipping a coin. Together, these ways increase chances of you avoiding Wish List Lessons (WLL). They routinely result in a distribution of learning in schools along a normal (Gaussian or bell shaped) curve.

From a learners’ view, the purpose for people in schools other than teachers is to assist teachers to AID learning. Links to these checklists are arranged by assignments (responsibilities) of educators in schools.

Seven Fast Facts

Each of the Checklists for Educators from ALV rest on seven facts that describe what is common in empirical research reports by experimental behavioral and social scientists during more than 125 years of studying learning. Read More

Standard of Conduct for Educators

  1. Be nice (Cockerell, 2013): pleasant, agreeable, wearing pleasing or attractive attire, courteous, polite, respectable, skillfully accurate and precise, always as though you work with the public at Disneyland.
  2. Return to Standard 1. Read More

Performance Standard for Educators

A learners’ view of professional performance by educators describes a standard based on experimental behavioral and social science studies of learning in and out of classrooms. These studies show what is possible and how to accomplish it through lessons. They also show how to offer lessons that students learn.  Read More


1.0 Schools

1.0 SCHOOLS exist when all students learn all lessons. This the de facto public standard against which schools are evaluated. While meeting this standard is technically possible, efforts in that direction remain works in progress. The New Era School Initiative (NESI) illustrates that possibility by assembling experimental research reports into one school. This checklist consists of practices addressed in NESI that increases the management of learning and decreases relying on chance for learning to occur for all learners of all lessons.
