Linking MET Teachers and Students in District-wide Data

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   George C. Alter, Peter A. Granda

The Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) Longitudinal Database includes scores on state tests for five years (2009-10 through 2013-14), which can used to measure student achievement and teacher value-added scores. In principle, these data also could be used for studies that follow teachers and students over time to measure the lasting effects of teaching and year-to-year variability in teacher value-added. Because the data contain information for all students and teachers, not just those involved in the MET study, they could also be used to compare the lasting effect of MET teachers to other teachers in the district. However, delays in receiving the data from the school district prevented linkages that consistently identify students or teachers across years. This project will rectify this by linking MET teachers and students in the district-wide data.

Funding Period: 10/05/2016 to 09/30/2017
