Advancing Teaching-Improving Learning

The Advancing Teaching–Improving Learning (ATIL) team’s efforts were grounded in the urgent and practical issues of improvement that confront America’s educational leaders. ATIL was funded by the Institute for Education Sciences.

As a part of this work, Carnegie enlisted a panel of distinguished scholars to address key questions and challenges that the developers of teacher evaluation systems face in designing and implementing systems that use value-added measures of teacher performance. The online Carnegie Knowledge Network provided education policymakers and practitioners with timely, authoritative research and recommendations on the use of value-added methodologies in teacher evaluation systems.

In addition, the ATIL team was engaged in rapid turnaround studies of key education issues (known as 90-Day Cycles) to generate new learning and promote innovation through a rapid and disciplined inquiry process.
