Theobald, Roddy; Goldhaber, Dan; Holden, Kristian; Stein, Marcy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
We used survey and administrative data from Washington State to assess the degree to which special education teacher preparation, district literacy instructional practices, and the alignment between preparation and practice were associated with the reading test score gains of students with high-incidence disabilities taught by early-career special…

Bruno, Paul; Goldhaber, Dan – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
Students' performance on standardized tests is clearly predictive of their later outcomes (Goldhaber & Özek, 2019) but whether the costs of administering tests are justified by the value of the tests for improving students' outcomes is controversial. This controversy fuels heated debates over federal testing requirements, such as those…

Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Choate, Kathryn; Brown, Nate – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
A growing quantitative literature finds evidence that student teaching placements predict later outcomes of teacher candidates and their students, but there is little large-scale quantitative evidence about the mechanisms for these estimated relationships. We use data from a survey of STEM teachers in Washington State to better understand how…

Xu, Zeyu; Backes, Ben; Goldhaber, Dan – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
A number of school districts and states have implemented transition intervention programs designed to help high school students graduate ready for college. This study estimates the effectiveness of a transition program implemented statewide in Kentucky for high school seniors called Targeted Interventions (TI). Using 11 years of linked panel data,…

Goldhaber, Dan; Koedel, Cory; Ozek, Umut; Parsons, Eric – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
We use comprehensive administrative data from three states to document the relationships between geographic mobility and student outcomes during K-12 schooling. We focus specifically on "nonstructural" mobility events--which we define as school or district changes that do not occur naturally as the result of planned transitions between…

Aldeman, Chad; Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
Over the last few months, media outlets including Axios, CNN, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal have raised the specter that there may be a rise in teachers exiting the profession. The concern is that a post-pandemic private sector boom, combined with relatively low teacher pay and burnout from online teaching, are a combustible mix…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy; Liddle, Stephanie – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
We use data on over 14,000 teacher candidates in Washington state, merged with employment data from the state's public schools and Unemployment Insurance system, to investigate the career paths and earnings of teacher candidates in the state. Around 75% of candidates are employed in some education position in each of the 5 years after student…

Fazlul, Ishtiaque; Koedel, Cory; Parsons, Eric; Qian, Cheng – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
We evaluate the feasibility of estimating test-score growth with a gap year in testing data, informing the scenario when state testing resumes after the 2020 COVID-19-induced test stoppage. Our research design is to simulate a gap year in testing using pre-COVID-19 data--when a true test gap did not occur--which facilitates comparisons of…

Goldhaber, Dan; Imberman, Scott A.; Strunk, Katharine O.; Hopkins, Bryant; Brown, Nate; Harbatkin, Erica; Kilbride, Tara – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
The decision about how and when to open schools to in-person instruction has been a key question for policymakers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The instructional modality of schools has implications not only for the health and safety of students and staff, but also student learning and the degree to which parents can engage in job activities.…

Comb, Meagan; Cowan, James; Goldhaber, Dan; Jin, Zeyu; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
States are responsible for setting and evaluating the standards that teacher preparation programs (TPPs) must meet for accreditation. Despite the considerable investment that states make in this process, no prior research has linked the ratings of TPPs generated by program reviews to inservice teacher performance. In this paper, we describe…

Figlio, David; Giuliano, Paola; Marchingiglio, Riccardo; Özek, Umut; Sapienza, Paola – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
We study the effect of exposure to immigrants on the educational outcomes of US-born students, using a unique dataset combining population-level birth and school records from Florida. This research question is complicated by substantial school selection of US-born students, especially among White and comparatively affluent students, in response to…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John M.; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
The overwhelming majority of public school teachers enter the teaching profession only after completing an apprenticeship as a student teacher. A growing body of research demonstrates how important the student teaching experience, also known as clinical practice, is for developing teaching capacities and shaping teacher career paths. But recent…

Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
Numerous stories raise concerns that as the pandemic ends, there might be a rash of public school teachers that opt to leave teaching. Will a recovering economy combined with an extremely challenging school year lead to very high levels of teacher attrition just when school recovery efforts are kicking into high gear? Of course, it is too soon to…

Fazlul, Ishtiaque; Koedel, Cory; Parsons, Eric – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
Free and reduced-price meal eligibility (FRM) is commonly used in education research and policy applications as an indicator of student poverty. However, using multiple data sources external to the school system, we show that FRM status is a poor proxy for poverty, with eligibility rates far exceeding what would be expected based on stated income…

Austin, Wes; Figlio, David; Goldhaber, Dan; Hanushek, Eric A.; Kilbride, Tara; Koedel, Cory; Lee, Jaeseok Sean; Luo, Jin; Özek, Umut; Parsons, Eric; Rivkin, Steven G.; Sass, Tim R.; Strunk, Katharine O. – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2021
There is empirical evidence of substantial heterogeneity in economic mobility across geographic areas and the efficacy of schools has been suggested as an explanatory factor. Using administrative microdata from seven states covering nearly 3 million students, we explore the potential role of schools in promoting economic mobility by estimating…
