Goldhaber, Dan – Journal of Teacher Education, 2019
Teacher preparation programs (TPPs) have received a great deal of policy and research attention of late. And despite the commonsense notion that preparation for formal classroom responsibilities should improve the readiness of teacher candidates, the value of formalized preservice teacher education is unclear. In this review of the quantitative…

Goldhaber, Dan; Quince, Vanessa; Theobald, Roddy – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Empirical evidence shows that disadvantaged students tend to have less-qualified and less-effective teachers than their more-advantaged peers. These teacher quality gaps (TQGs), which have existed for decades and across many measures of student disadvantage and teacher quality, are an important factor explaining student achievement gaps between…

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

Krieg, John; Goldhaber, Dan; 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") and the schools in which student teaching occurs. We find that, all else equal, teachers with…

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…

Strunk, Katharine O.; Goldhaber, Dan; Knight, David S.; Brown, Nate – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2018
Few studies examine employee responses to layoff-induced unemployment risk; none that we know of quantify the impact of job insecurity on individual employee productivity. Using data from the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and Washington State during the Great Recession, we provide the first evidence about the impact of the layoff…

Backes, Ben; Goldhaber, Dan; Cade, Whitney; Sullivan, Kate; Dodson, Melissa – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
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;…

Goldhaber, Dan; Quince, Vanessa; Theobald, Roddy – American Educational Research Journal, 2018
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…

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; Krieg, John M.; Theobald, Roddy – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
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. Our primary finding is that teachers are more effective when the student demographics of their current school are similar to the student demographics of…

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; Walch, Joe – Phi Delta Kappan, 2016
Debates over the efficacy of tenure are longstanding but tenure reform is now more prominent in the public eye given recent high-profile legislative battles in states like Ohio and Wisconsin. This focus on tenure also is a natural outgrowth of the large body of research showing that differences between individual teachers can have profound effects…
