Value-Added Models for Teacher Preparation Programs: Validity and Reliability Threats, and a Manageable Alternative
Brady, Michael P.; Heiser, Lawrence A.; McCormick, Jazarae K.; Forgan, James
Educational Forum, v80 n3 p339-352 2016
High-stakes standardized student assessments are increasingly used in value-added evaluation models to connect teacher performance to P-12 student learning. These assessments are also being used to evaluate teacher preparation programs, despite validity and reliability threats. A more rational model linking student performance to candidates who actually teach these students is presented. Preliminary findings with three candidate cohorts indicate that the majority of their students met learning objectives and showed substantial pre-to-post learning gains.
