Measuring Teacher Effects on Pupil Achievement.
Veldman, Donald J.; Brophy, Jere E.
Four successive years of Metropolitan Achievement Test scores for all second- and third-grade pupils in a large Southwestern urban school system were used to compute mean residual gain scores for 170 teachers who taught during the three focal years. Alternate regression models were compared for precision in estimating the magnitude and consistency of teacher influence on pupil achievement. Consistency was examined across MAT subtests, pupil sex, and the three focal school years. Thirty-one of the most consistent teachers were intensively studied with self-report instruments and classroom observations. (Author)
