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. E. (2004).
