Emerging Solutions to Improve Student-Teacher Linkage
Graham, Matthew; Watson, Jeffery; Thorn, Christopher A.
Online Submission
Nationwide, states and districts are implementing programs that involve linking teachers with student data. These initiatives range from educator evaluation systems that consider student growth to data-driven professional development decisions and large-scale program evaluations. Establishing accurate links is crucial in any initiative that links teachers and students, as data errors could result in inaccurate program evaluations or erroneous assessments of the role a specific teacher plays on student achievement. This paper summarizes several emerging solutions for improving the accuracy and quality of student-teacher linkage. The emerging solutions fall into two main categories: (1) leveraging different data sources and (2) improving data systems. (Contains 7 footnotes.)
