Understanding and Using Value-Added Analysis—A Toolkit for Educators

In fall 2010, LISD received its first value-added reports. To build capacity to use this information to inform teaching and learning, each campus principal received the Understanding & Using Value-Added Analysis—A Toolkit for Educators. The toolkit includes district-, building- and teacher-level guides and other useful resources for accessing, interpreting and using value-added reports. It will also help educators participate in the value-added online courses (available to all LISD employees).
