Over the past 15 years, a lot of research.

Principal finding: Teachers matter more to student learning than anything else. And there are far bigger differences among them than we ever knew.

“If the effects were to accumulate, having a

top-quartile teacher rather than a bottom

quartile teacher four years in a row would be

enough to close the black-white test score

Teachers are the greatest school-based influence on student achievement (Nye, Konstantopolous, & Hedges, 2004; Rockoff, 2004).

Every student should have a high-quality teacher.

Currently, we use “highly qualified” to define this characteristic, but is that the same thing?

What We Know


how do we measure teacher effectiveness
How do we measure teacher effectiveness?
  • "It's a hard nut to crack. The things that are easy to measure don't matter that much, and the things that matter aren't easy to measure."

Adam Gamoran, interim dean at the University of Wisconsin School of Education, talking to Teacher Magazine in December 2008

what does oregon s data say
What does Oregon’s Data say?
  • Elementary HQT Percentage
    • High Poverty 97.3%
    • Low Poverty 93.1%
  • Elementary Percentage Schools not making AYP
    • High Poverty 12.95%
    • Low Poverty 1.03%
what does oregon s data say continued
What does Oregon’s Data say? (continued)
  • Secondary HQT Percentage
    • High Poverty 94.3%
    • Low Poverty 94.9%
  • Secondary Percentage Schools not making AYP
    • High Poverty 68.86%
    • Low Poverty 32.11%
Research has, at this point, shown that these “teacher inputs” (certification status, degree, subject-area major) do not greatly impact student achievement (Goldhaber & Brewer, 2000; Rice, 2003).

In other words, there are weak and mixed effects of teacher qualifications on student achievement test scores (Wayne & Youngs, 2003; Wilson & Floden, 2003).

What We Know


Most recently, there has been a shift from teacher quality to teaching quality to teacher effectiveness.

As a concept, teacher effectiveness measures teaching quality through contributions to student growth and learning.

This is where the research is headed.
