Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Harmon, Kim; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
Purpose: A burgeoning literature investigates the importance of student teaching placements for teacher candidate development, but an important perspective that is largely missing from the existing literature is that of the school districts that host student teachers. In this paper, we describe the student teaching process from the perspective of…

St. John, Elise; Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
Student teaching has long been considered the most important component of an effective teacher education program. Recently, new research is finding links between these experiences and teacher candidates' future effectiveness, yet relatively little is known about the student teacher placement process and, in particular, the processes that lead to…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
We exploit within-teacher variation in the years that teachers host an apprentice ("student teacher") in Washington State to estimate the causal effect of these apprenticeships on student achievement, both during the apprenticeship and afterwards. The average causal effect of hosting a student teacher on student performance in the year…

Conaway, Carrie; Goldhaber, Dan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
A key job of education policymakers is to make decisions under uncertainty. They must weigh the risks, rewards, and costs of different interventions, policies, and mixes of resources, and make decisions even when the likely outcome is uncertain. How policymakers think about and deal with uncertainty has important implications for resource…

Krieg, John; Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
We use comprehensive data on student teaching placements from 14 teacher education programs (TEPs) in Washington State to explore the sorting of teacher candidates to the teachers who supervise their student teaching ("cooperating teachers") and the schools in which student teaching occurs. We find that, all else equal, teachers with…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
We use comprehensive data on student teaching placements from 14 teacher education programs (TEPs) in Washington State to explore the sorting of teacher candidates to the teachers who supervise their student teaching ("cooperating teachers" or CTs) and the schools in which student teaching occurs. All else equal, teachers with more…

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; 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; Startz, Richard – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
It is common to assume that worker productivity is normally distributed, but this assumption is rarely if ever tested. We estimate the distribution of worker productivity where individual productivity is measured with error, using the productivity of elementary school teachers as an example. Proposals to improve teacher productivity often focus on…

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…

Goldhaber, Dan; Quince, Vanessa; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
This policy brief reviews evidence about the extent to which disadvantaged students are taught by teachers with lower value-added estimates of performance, and seeks to reconcile differences in findings from different studies. We demonstrate that much of the inequity in teacher value added in Washington state is due to differences across different…

Goldhaber, Dan; Lavery, Lesley; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
We investigate patterns of teacher mobility in districts with different collective bargaining agreement (CBA) transfer provisions. We use detailed teacher-level longitudinal data from Washington State to estimate the probability that teachers of varying experience and effectiveness levels transfer out of their schools to another school in the…

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…

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…
