Strunk, Katharine O.; Goldhaber, Dan; Knight, David S.; Brown, Nate – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 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…

Darolia, Rajeev; Koedel, Cory – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use statewide administrative data from Missouri to examine the explanatory power of high schools over student sorting to colleges and majors at 4-year public universities. We develop a "preparation and persistence index" (PPI) for each university-by-major cell in the Missouri system that captures dimensions of selectivity and rigor…

Cullen, Julie Berry; Koedel, Corry; Parsons, Eric – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2017
Improving public sector workforce quality is challenging in sectors such as education where worker productivity is difficult to assess and manager incentives are muted by political and bureaucratic constraints. In this paper, we study how providing improved information to principals about teacher effectiveness and encouraging them to use the…

Kim, Dongwoo; Koedel, Cory; Ni, Shawn; Podgursky, Michael; Wu, Weiwei – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2017
A vast research literature is devoted to analyzing causes of and potential remedies for early-career teacher attrition. However, much less attention has been paid to late-career attrition among experienced teachers, which is driven primarily by retirement plan incentives. Although there is some variation across states, it is generally the case…

Hemelt, Steven W.; Lenard, Matthew A.; Paeplow, Colleen G. – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2017
Modern career academies aim to prepare students for college and the labor market. This paper examines the profile of students entering such academies in one school district and estimates causal effects of participation in one of the district's well-regarded academies on a range of high school and college outcomes. Using rich administrative data…

Darolia, Rajeev; Koedel, Cory – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2017
We use statewide administrative data from Missouri to examine the role of high schools in explaining students' initial college and major placements at 4-year public universities. To facilitate our investigation of postsecondary sorting, we develop a "preparation and persistence index" (PPI) for each university-by-major cell in the…

Clotfelter, Charles; Hemelt, Steven; Ladd, Helen – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2016
In April 2000 the state of North Carolina announced an increase in the minimum number of math courses students would need to take to be considered for admission as undergraduates to any of the University of North Carolina's 15 four-year branch campuses. Previously, students had been required to take at least three math courses in high school to be…

Goldhaber, Dan; Cowan, James; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
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; Quince, Vanessa; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2016
This policy brief reviews evidence about the extent to which disadvantaged students are taught by teachers with lower value-added estimates of performance, and seeks to reconcile differences in findings from different studies. We demonstrate that much of the inequity in teacher value added in Washington state is due to differences across different…

Clotfelter, Charles T.; Hemelt, Steven W.; Ladd, Helen F. – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2016
This paper examines the role of teaching assistants and other personnel on student outcomes in elementary schools during a period of recession-induced cutbacks in teachers and teaching assistants. Using panel data from North Carolina, we exploit the state's unique system of financing its local public schools to identify the causal effects of…

Hanushek, Eric A.; Rivkin, Steven G.; Schiman, Jeffrey C. – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2016
It is widely believed that teacher turnover adversely affects the quality of instruction in urban schools serving predominantly disadvantaged children, and a growing body of research investigates various components of turnover effects. The evidence at first seems contradictory, as the quality of instruction appears to decline following turnover…

Backes, Ben; Cowan, James; Goldhaber, Dan; Koedel, Cory; Miller, Luke; Xu, Zeyu – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2016
Using administrative longitudinal data from five states, we study how value-added measures of teacher performance are affected by changes in state standards and assessments. We first document the stability of teachers' value-added rankings during transitions to new standard and assessment regimes and compare our findings to stability during stable…

Most public school teachers in the United States are enrolled in defined benefit (DB) pension plans. Using administrative micro data from four states, combined with national pension funding data, we show these plans have accumulated substantial unfunded liabilities -- effectively debt -- owing to previous plan operations. On average across 49…

Backes, Ben; Hansen, Michael; Xu, Zeyu; Brady, Victoria – Journal of Teacher Education, 2019
This article examines Teach For America's (TFA) placement strategy in Miami-Dade County Public Schools, in which large numbers of TFA corps members are placed as clusters into a targeted set of disadvantaged schools, to investigate whether the large-scale infusion of TFA corps members into these schools induced broader improvements across the…
