PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting SY13-14 Release in Fall 2014 The Importance of PVAAS Teacher Specific Reporting “A student assigned to a very good teacher for a single school year may gain up to a full year’s worth of additional academic growth compared to a student assigned to a very poor teacher. Having a series of strong or weak teachers in consecutive years compounds the impact. Give high-need students three highly effective teachers in a row and they may outperform students taught by three ineffective teachers in a row by as much as 50 percentile points.”3 For information about the impact of teacher effectiveness on student outcomes, see Rivkin, S., E. Hanushek, and J. Kain (2005). “Teachers, Schools, and Academic Achievement,” Econometrica, 73(2), 417-458. Also see Sanders, W.L. and Rivers, J.C. (1996). “Research Project Report: Cumulative and Residual Effects of Teachers on Future Student Academic Achievement,” University of Tennessee Value-Added Research and Assessment Center; and Rockoff, J.
