Meyer, Robert; Pier, Libby; Mader, Jordan; Christian, Michal; Rice, Andrew; Loeb, Susanna; Fricke, Hans; Hough, Heather – Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE, 2019
This brief applies value-added models to student surveys in the CORE Districts to explore whether social-emotional learning (SEL) surveys can be used to measure effective classroom-level supports for SEL. The authors find that classrooms differ in their effect on students' growth in self-reported SEL--even after accounting for school-level…

Lockwood, J. R.; Castellano, Katherine E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) increasingly are being used in the United States for inferences about student achievement growth and educator effectiveness. Emerging research has indicated that SGPs estimated from observed test scores have large measurement errors. As such, little is known about "true" SGPs, which are defined in terms…
