Garcy, Anthony M. – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2013
U.S. Federal and state education policies place considerable emphasis on assessing the effects that schools and teachers have on student test score performance. It is important for education policy makers to also consider other factors that can affect student achievement. This study finds that an exogenous school factor, discontinuous health…

Gill, Brian; Bruch, Julie; Booker, Kevin – Regional Educational Laboratory Mid-Atlantic, 2013
States and school districts are exploring alternatives to state tests for measuring teachers' contributions to student learning. One approach applies statistical value-added methods to alternative student assessments such as commercially available tests and end-of course tests. The evidence suggests that these methods can reliably distinguish…

Gill, Brian; Bruch, Julie; Booker, Kevin – Regional Educational Laboratory Mid-Atlantic, 2013
States are increasingly interested in including measures of student achievement growth, or "value- added," in evaluating teachers. Annual state assessments, however, which are the typical measure of student growth, usually cover only reading and math teachers and only in grades 4-8. These state assessments thus cannot …
