Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy; Goldhaber, Dan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
We use data from Washington State to examine two distinct stages of the teacher pipeline: the placement of prospective teachers in student teaching assignments; and the hiring of prospective teachers into their first teaching positions. We find that prospective teachers are likely to complete their student teaching near their college and…

Goldhaber, Dan; Lavery, Lesley; Theobald, Roddy – Educational Researcher, 2015
Policymakers aiming to close the well-documented achievement gap between advantaged and disadvantaged students have increasingly turned their attention to issues of teacher quality. A number of studies have demonstrated that teachers are inequitably distributed across student subgroups by input measures, like experience and qualifications, as well…

Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Tien, Christopher – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
It has been well documented--including in recent reports from Washington State (Professional Educator Standards Board, 2014) and several large districts across the country (Albert Shanker Institute, 2015)--that the public teaching workforce is far less racially and ethnically diverse than the student body in U.S. public schools. Washington State,…

Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Tien, Christopher – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
Concerns about the (lack of) diversity of the U.S. teacher workforce--and, in particular, the mismatch between the demographics of the teacher workforce and the nation's students--are not new. Recruitment of minorities into teaching has long been a policy goal, particularly in districts with large percentages of minority students (Dometrius &…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
We investigate the relationship between teacher licensure test scores and student test achievement and high school course-taking. We focus on three subject/grade combinations-- middle school math, ninth-grade algebra and geometry, and ninth-grade biology--and find evidence that a teacher's basic skills test scores are modestly predictive of…

Goldhaber, Dan; Quince, Vanessa; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
There is mounting evidence of substantial "teacher quality gaps" (TQGs) between advantaged and disadvantaged students, but practically no empirical evidence about their history. We use longitudinal data on public school students, teachers, and schools from two states--North Carolina and Washington--to provide a descriptive history of the…

Goldhaber, Dan; Cowan, James; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
We use longitudinal data from Washington State to provide estimates of the extent to which performance on the edTPA, a performance-based, subject-specific assessment of teacher candidates, is predictive of the likelihood of employment in the teacher workforce and value-added measures of teacher effectiveness. While edTPA scores are highly…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
We use data from six Washington State teacher education programs to investigate the relationship between teacher candidates' student teaching experiences and their later teaching effectiveness and probability of attrition. We find that teachers who student taught in schools with lower teacher turnover are less likely to leave the state's teaching…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
We investigate the predictive validity of teacher credential test scores for student performance in secondary STEM classrooms in Washington state. After replicating earlier findings that teacher basic skills licensure test scores are a modest and statistically significant predictor of student math test score gains in elementary grades, we focus on…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy; Brown, Nate – Center for Education Data & Research, 2014
Although the shortage of qualified STEM and Special Education teachers is well documented and often discussed, there has been little improvement in increasing the number of teachers in these subject areas. This policy brief reports on the front-end of the teacher pipeline and shows that in Washington State, like across the country, there has been…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John M.; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2014
We use a unique longitudinal sample of student teachers ("interns") from six Washington state teacher training institutions to investigate patterns of entry into the teaching workforce. Specifically, we estimate split population models that simultaneously estimate the impact of individual characteristics and student teaching experiences…
