Student Loan defferment question

I am about to place my larger student loans in defferment to pay off my private student loan through sallie mae and another smaller oan through them faster.  Also i have wives rings basically i am placing the student loan in defferment so i can pay off these faster and work on that student loan later.
 
i know student loans are viewed as an installment like an auto or home loan. how do they effect your score if they are placed in a deferrment? Im doing this in attempt to pay off these smaller loans faster and hopefully increase my credit score.

Starting Score: 643
Current Score: 657
