This study was conducted to determine the most effective means of implementing career ladder level assignments that are made on the basis of student achievement and other bases required by law in Texas. Part one consists of a research study focusing on research in teacher effectiveness, accountability, measurement and implementation concerns, and descriptions of programs throughout the country which include student achievement indicators in career ladder, teacher evaluation, and accountability systems. Part two is a description of the process used to gather information and involve professional organizations and national experts in the development of the study. The final part presents an analysis of three options to consider in the use of student achievement indicators as an additional component in career ladders: (1) the development of a local district career ladder component in student achievement; (2) the use of a state designed and mandated student achievement goal assessment process as an additional domain of the Texas Teacher Appraisal System; and (3) the use of statistical analysis techiniques with standardized achievement scores collected and analyzed for each student, to be used as a component in career ladder programs.
