Theobald, Roddy; Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Holden, Kristian L. – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 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 – Journal of Teacher Education, 2017
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; 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; Cowan, James; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016

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; Lavery, Lesley; Theobald, Roddy – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2016
We utilize detailed teacher-level longitudinal data from Washington State to investigate patterns of teacher mobility in districts with different collective bargaining agreement (CBA) transfer provisions. Specifically, we estimate the log odds that teachers of varying experience and effectiveness levels transfer out of their schools to other…

Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Holden, Kristian L.; Brown, Nate – Educational Researcher, 2015
Due to data limitations, very little is known about patterns of cross-state teacher mobility. It is an important issue because barriers to cross-state mobility create labor market frictions that could lead both current and prospective teachers to opt out of the teaching profession. In this article, we match state-level administrative data sets…

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 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…

Cowan, James; Goldhaber, Dan – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2013
We study a popular dual enrollment program in Washington State using a new administrative database linking high school and postsecondary enrollments. Conditional on prior high school performance and basic demographic and economic covariates, dual enrollment students are more likely to attend any college, but they are no more likely to attend…

Goldhaber, Dan; Hansen, Michael – Center for Education Data & Research, 2010
Economic theory commonly models unobserved worker quality as a given parameter that is fixed over time, but empirical evidence supporting this assumption is sparse. In this paper we report on work estimating the stability of value-added estimates of teacher effects, an important area of investigation given that new workforce policies implicitly…

Rouse, Cecilia Elena; Hannaway, Jane; Goldhaber, Dan; Figlio, David – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research, 2007
While numerous recent authors have studied the effects of school accountability systems on student test performance and school "gaming" of accountability incentives, there has been little attention paid to substantive changes in instructional policies and practices resulting from school accountability. The lack of research is primarily…
