  • Jorge,
    Just viewed your presentation and it looked really good. Like the way you incorporated charts into the slides. Had trouble getting my charts to work so didn't use many.

Value-Added Data and Teacher Effectiveness

  1. 1. Value-Added Data The importance of Value-Added Data
  2. 2. Value-Added Data Purpose <ul><li>It is a method that uses student achievement data over time to measure the learning gains students make. </li></ul><ul><li>If we measure age vs. height, then measuring grade level vs. achievement is a valid point. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Value-Added Data Purpose <ul><li>Also, it offers a way to asses teachers and school impact on the students’ learning without taking in consideration external factors such as socio-economic status. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Teachers’ Impact <ul><li>There is an strong relationship among teachers and students’ success. </li></ul><ul><li>June River’s Study data: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Low students assigned to highly effective teachers had a 60% probability of passing on the first attempt. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Teachers’ Impact Cont. <ul><li>June River’s Study data: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Low students assigned to low effective teachers had a 15% probability of passing on the first attempt. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>High students assigned to low effective teachers had a 80% probability of passing on the first attempt. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Teachers’ Impact Cont. <ul><li>June River’s Study data: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>High students assigned to high effective teachers had a 90% probability of passing on the first attempt. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Do you believe the teacher makes the difference on the student's success? </li></ul>
  7. 7. “Teaching in the Middle” <ul><li>There is a tendency for teachers to teach in in the middle (average students). </li></ul><ul><li>Gifted and low performance students in many cases are not served as they should. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers should be aware of providing learning for all if we believe that all students are capable to learn. </li></ul>
  8. 8. “Teaching in the Middle” Cont. <ul><li>Analyzing Value-Added Data could help the teacher to identify if he/she had concentrated on specific group (low, medium, or high) students. </li></ul><ul><li>The result would be instruction adjustment to meet all students’ need. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Teaching Shed Patterns <ul><li>It is when teachers concentrate in the lowest achievers; therefore, they make a substantial progress in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>The highest achievers are held back; therefore, they make not progress in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>We need to teach all... </li></ul>
  10. 10. Teaching Shed Patterns Cont. G I A N Low Average High Students’ Previous Achievement
  11. 11. Teachers’ Variability <ul><li>Teachers has different stages of effectiveness during their careers. </li></ul><ul><li>It is very clear that teachers effectiveness is the main factor on student’s success. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Teachers’ Variability Cont. <ul><li>Some studies suggest that beginning teachers had a significant improvement over three years period. </li></ul><ul><li>In the following years there is very little improvement if any. </li></ul><ul><li>Next slide present evidence from New York City. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Teachers’ Variability Cont.
  14. 14. Sustained Academic Growth <ul><li>In order to measure student’s success, one test it is not enough to measure sustained academic growth. </li></ul><ul><li>We need to measure how much growth the student had accomplished during the school year, semester, or perhaps monthly. </li></ul><ul><li>We need to use data to measure this growth. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Sustained Academic Growth Cont. <ul><li>Johnny is declining on his academic growth. </li></ul><ul><li>Suzy shows a sustained academic growth. </li></ul><ul><li>The ultimate goal is to have sustained academic growth for all students. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Achievement vs. Progress <ul><li>It is important to emphasize that the teachers’ objectives and goals must be oriented to students’ sustainable progress (growth). </li></ul>
  17. 17. Achievement vs. Progress Cont.
  18. 18. Resources <ul><li>Battelle for Kids / Bringing clarity to school improvement. </li></ul><ul><li>TAP / the system for teacher and student advancement. </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of the TAP web page there are some PDF documents links that could help the reader to understand Value-Added Data. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Resources Cont. <ul><li>The Wing Institute : What Effect does experience have on teacher effectiveness. </li></ul><ul><li>MSPNet Library: “Evaluating Value-Added Models for Teacher Accountability” article. </li></ul>
