Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 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; 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…

Cowen, James; Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy – Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, 2017
Effective teachers make a real difference for student learning. But research shows that both in Massachusetts and nationwide, academically struggling students and those from historically low performing subgroups are less likely to be assigned to the teachers who are most likely to generate strong results. This results in missed opportunities to…

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…

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; 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; Lavery, Lesley; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2014
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 – Education Finance and Policy, 2013
Over 2,000 teachers in the state of Washington received reduction in force (RIF) notices across the 2008-09 and 2009-10 school years. We link data on these RIF notices to an administrative data set that includes student, teacher, school, and district variables to determine the factors that predict the likelihood of a teacher receiving a RIF…
