Event Information
Much of the research on the validity of value-added for teacher evaluation has been based on studies of its use to rank teachers within the same school. However, most districts are using value-added methodology to rank teachers across the district. In districts that reflect neighborhood residential segregation, value-added rankings will compare teachers who teach very different types of students. In this webinar, Stephen Raudenbush, Professor of Sociology and Public Policy Studies at the University of Chicago, will discuss the challenges of using value-added scores to compare teachers who work in different schools and will be available to answer your questions on the topic.

Your Host

  • Christopher Thorn, Director of the Assessing-Teaching Improving-Learning Program
