The Use of Value Added in Teacher Evaluations

Monday, Jul 13, 2015 | 2:15pm

Description

Over the past 5-7 years, the use of value-added and other types of growth models has proliferated rapidly, to the point where most US. public school teachers now work in states or districts that are either using these models in teacher evaluation systems, or are in the process of incorporating them.

This session provides practitioners with basic information on the strengths and weaknesses of value-added models, with a particular emphasis on their use in teacher evaluation and differentiated compensation systems. The material presented will be of assistance to those that are currently designing new evaluations or are trying to change existing evaluations, as well as to anyone who is interested in these models and how they work.

It was held at the 2015 AFT TEACH Conference, on July 13, 2015, in Washington, D.C.
