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; Koedel, Cory – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
In the summer of 2013, the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) issued public, highly-visible ratings of teacher education programs as part of their ambitious and controversial Teacher Prep Review. We provide the first empirical examination of NCTQ ratings, beginning with a descriptive overview of the ratings and documentation of how they…

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; 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; 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; 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…

Martinkova, Patricia; Goldhaber, Dan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
Inter-rater reliability, commonly assessed by intra-class correlation coefficient ICC, is an important index for describing the extent to which there is consistency amongst two or more raters in assigned measures. In organizational research, the data structure is often hierarchical and designs deviate substantially from the ideal of a balanced…

Gross, Betheny; DeArmond, Michael; Goldhaber, Dan – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2010
Education reformers routinely call on school districts to stop hiring teachers based on seniority, which they argue interferes with effective staffing, especially in disadvantaged schools. The few researchers who have empirically studied the issue, however, disagree about whether seniority-based hiring is systematically associated with staffing…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gross, Betheny; Player, Daniel – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research, 2007
Most studies that have fueled alarm over the attrition and mobility rates of high-quality teachers have relied on proxy indicators of teacher quality, which recent research finds to be only weakly correlated with value-added measures of teachers' performance. We examine attrition and mobility of teachers using teacher value-added measures for…
