I’ll be presenting at the 2013 NWEA Fusion conference in June on the statistics of using student-growth for teacher evaluation. How sure can you be?will address:
- The meaning of “a typical year’s growth” as defined by NWEA.
- How NWEA identifies a historical cohort for evaluating student growth.
- The best statistics that NWEA provides for contextualizing student growth.
- How to quantify the uncertainty of a teacher evaluation derived from student growth data.
