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…

Goldhaber, Dan – Education Finance and Policy, 2018
Educational researchers want to engage in, or with, research that matters--research that helps education institutions improve the academic and life outcomes of students. This essay is about whether education research matters for students. The author defines "death-bed impact" as the direct line between education research and student…

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; 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; 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…

Darling-Hammond, Linda; Goldhaber, Dan; Strunk, Katherine O.; Sutcher, Leib – Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE, 2018
California is experiencing one of its most severe teacher shortages in two decades. Budget cuts and layoffs resulting from the recession contributed to a steep decline in the number of teachers in California, falling from a high of 310,362 teachers in the 2007-08 school year to 283,836 four years later. Recent efforts, including Proposition 30 and…

Goldhaber, Dan; Strunk, Katherine O.; Brown, Nate; Chambers, Andrea; Naito, Natsumi; Wolff, Malcolm – Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE, 2018
California, like many states, is experiencing significant challenges with teacher staffing. Numerous headlines over the last few years highlight the difficulties that the state faces in developing, recruiting, and, ultimately, hiring enough teachers (Blume, 2016; Apodaca, 2017; Calefati, 2017; Carver-Thomas & Darling-Hammond, 2017; Times…

Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Huntington-Klein, Nick – Education Finance and Policy, 2017
Despite their widespread use, there is little academic evidence on whether applicant selection instruments can improve teacher hiring. We examine the relationship between two screening instruments used by Spokane Public Schools to select classroom teachers and three teacher outcomes: value added, absences, and attrition. We observe all applicants…
