Theobald, Roddy; Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Holden, Kristian – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use longitudinal data on high school students in Washington State to assess the relationships between English Language Arts (ELA) teacher value added and other qualifications and the high school and postsecondary outcomes of their students. We also investigate whether these relationships differ for students with and without disabilities. We…

Goldhaber, Dan; Long, Mark C.; Person, Ann E.; Rooklyn, Jordan – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2017
We investigate factors influencing student sign-ups for Washington State's College Bound Scholarship (CBS) program. We find a substantial share of eligible middle school students fail to sign the CBS, forgoing college financial aid. Student characteristics associated with signing the scholarship parallel characteristics of low-income students who…

Goldhaber, Dan; Long, Mark; Gratz, Trevor; Rooklyn, Jordan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2017
An increasingly prevalent type of program designed to address college attainment gaps are state-based financial aid programs that offer low-income middle school students a promise of funding for college in exchange for making a pledge to do well in high school, be a good citizen and not be convicted of a felony, and apply for financial aid to…

Theobald, Roddy; Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Holden, Kristian L. – Center for Education Data & Research, 2017
We use longitudinal data on all high school students in Washington State, including postsecondary education and workforce outcomes, to investigate predictors of intermediate and postsecondary outcomes for students with disabilities. We pay particular attention to career and technical education (CTE) enrollment and the extent of inclusion in…

Goldhaber, Dan; Strunk, Katharine O.; Brown, Nate; Knight, David S. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2016
One consequence of the Great Recession is that teacher layoffs occurred at a scale previously unseen. In this article, we assess the effects of receiving a layoff notice on teacher mobility using data from Los Angeles and Washington State. Our analyses are based on 6-year panels of data in each site, including 4 years of layoffs. We find that the…

Goldhaber, Dan; Long, Mark C.; Person, Ann; Rooklyn, Jordan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
Why individuals choose not to sign up for social programs, particularly when the costs of sign-up are low and the benefits generous, is a crucial question for policy scholars. In this paper, we show that a substantial share of qualified middle school students fail to sign up for Washington State's College Bound Scholarship program, and this…

Backes, Ben; Goldhaber, Dan; Cade, Whitney; Sullivan, Kate; Dodson, Melissa – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2016
UTeach is a well-known, university-based program designed to increase the number of high-quality science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers in the workforce. The UTeach program was originally developed by faculty at the University of Texas at Austin but has rapidly spread and is now available at 44 universities in 21 states;…

Cowan, James; Goldhaber, Dan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
We study the effectiveness of teachers certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) in Washington State, which has one of the largest populations of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in the nation. Based on value-added models in math and reading, we find that NBPTS certified teachers are about 0.01-0.05…

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; Cowan, James; Long, Mark; Huntington-Klein, Nick – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
Students are typically given a large amount of freedom to choose the level of "curricular dispersion": the tight focus or lack thereof in the courses they elect to take while in college. There is little evidence about what predicts students' curricular dispersion, whether it affects later college or labor force outcomes, or, in fact, how…

Cowan, James; Goldhaber, Dan – Review of Higher Education, 2015
We study a popular dual enrollment program in Washington State, "Running Start" using a new administrative database that links high school and postsecondary data. Conditional on prior high school performance, we find that students participating in Running Start are more likely to attend any college but less likely to attend four-year…

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; 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…

We study a popular dual enrollment program in Washington State, "Running Start" using a new administrative database that links high school and postsecondary data. Conditional on prior high school performance, we find that students participating in Running Start are more likely to attend any college but less likely to attend four-year…
