Grading the Teachers: Stories on Value-Added Starting Sunday

Share on Facebook Share Share on Twitter Share

Friday, June 14, 2013 at 11:10 AM

GTT logoOhio is introducing a new way of grading teachers, one based on student test scores and whether students learn as much as expected in a given year. It uses a measure called value-added.

Starting Sunday, StateImpact Ohio and the Cleveland Plain Dealer will launch a series of stories about value-added:

  • Sunday: What is value-added and why does it matter?
  • Monday: Are Ohio’s “best” teachers paid accordingly?
  • Tuesday: Are teachers at high-poverty schools at a disadvantage in these ratings?

You can:

  • Log on to StateImpact Ohio and the Plain Dealer all this week;
  • Listen to radio reports Monday and Tuesday morning and afternoon on Ohio public radio stations;
  • Tune into WCPN's call-in talk show the Sound of Ideas Wednesday for a special value-added show; and
  • Join the conversation online, here on StateImpact or on Twitter #teachereval #ohedchat.
