Value-Added Studies

With federal support from the United States Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences, researchers at the National Center on Performance Incentives are conducting research on value-added measurement. Specifically, they are examining the promise and limitations for different types of statistical procedures used to estimate teacher performance from their students’ achievement test scores. This research addresses a key question related to performance incentives in public education; that is, how educator compensation might be linked to the achievement gains of their students.
