Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Fumia, Danielle – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use panel data in Washington State to study the extent to which teacher assignments between fourth and eighth grade explain gaps between advantaged and disadvantaged students--as defined by underrepresented minority status (URM) and eligibility for free or reduced price lunch (FRL)--in their eighth grade math test scores and high school course…

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…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
We investigate the relationship between teacher licensure test scores and student test achievement and high school course-taking. We focus on three subject/grade combinations-- middle school math, ninth-grade algebra and geometry, and ninth-grade biology--and find evidence that a teacher's basic skills test scores are modestly predictive of…

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

Cowan, James; Goldhaber, Dan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2014
As part of Washington State's efforts to ensure and improve the quality of the teacher workforce, the Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB), with assistance from Educational Testing Services (ETS), has recently introduced a new, evidence-based assessment of teachers called the ProTeach Portfolio. The development of ProTeach was mandated by…

Goldhaber, Dan; Walch, Joe; Gabele, Brian – Center for Education Data & Research, 2012
Policymakers appear increasingly inclined to utilize measures of student achievement, often state assessment results, to inform high-stakes teacher personnel decisions. This has been spurred on by the federal government's Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) and Race to the Top (RttT) grant programs, each of which urge states and localities to tie teacher…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gross, Betheny; Player, Daniel – Center for Education Data & Research, 2010
In this paper we examine the mobility of early-career teachers of varying quality, measured using value-added estimates of teacher performance. Unlike previous studies that have examined these issues, we focus on the variation in these effects across the effectiveness distribution. We find that, on average, more effective teachers tend to stay in…
