Garrett, Rachel; Steinberg, Matthew P. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2015
Despite policy efforts to encourage multiple measures of performance in newly developing teacher evaluation systems, practical constraints often result in evaluations based predominantly on formal classroom observations. Yet there is limited knowledge of how these observational measures relate to student achievement. This article leverages the…

Rohrer, Doug; Dedrick, Robert F.; Burgess, Kaleena – Grantee Submission, 2014
Most mathematics assignments consist of a group of problems requiring the same strategy. For example, a lesson on the quadratic formula is typically followed by a block of problems requiring students to use the quadratic formula, which means that students know the appropriate strategy before they read each problem. In an alternative approach,…

Master, Benjamin; Loeb, Susanna; Wyckoff, James – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2017
Evidence that teachers' short-term instructional effects persist over time and predict substantial long-run impacts on students' lives provides much of the impetus for a wide range of educational reforms focused on identifying and responding to differences in teachers' value-added to student learning. However, relatively little research has…

Chingos, Matthew M.; West, Martin R. – Education Finance and Policy, 2012
We examine earnings records for more than 130,000 classroom teachers employed by Florida public schools between the 2001-2 and 2006-7 school years, roughly 35,000 of whom left the classroom during that time. A majority of those leaving the classroom remained employed by public school districts. Among teachers in grades 4-8 leaving for other…
