Pvaas teacher specific reporting

PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting

SY13-14 Release in Fall 2014

The importance of pvaas teacher specific reporting

The Importance of PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting

“A student assigned to a very good teacher for a single school year may gain up to a full year’s worth of additional academic growth compared to a student assigned to a very poor teacher. Having a series of strong or weak teachers in consecutive years compounds the impact. Give high-need students three highly effective teachers in a row and they may outperform students taught by three ineffective teachers in a row by as much as 50 percentile points.”3

3For information about the impact of teacher effectiveness on student outcomes, see Rivkin, S., E. Hanushek, and J. Kain (2005). “Teachers, Schools, and Academic Achievement,” Econometrica, 73(2), 417-458. Also see Sanders, W.L. and Rivers, J.C. (1996). “Research Project Report: Cumulative and Residual Effects of Teachers on Future Student Academic Achievement,” University of Tennessee Value-Added Research and Assessment Center; and Rockoff, J. E. (2004). “The Impact of Indi­vidual Teachers on Students’ Achievement: Evidence from Panel Data.” American Economic Review 94(2), 247-52.
