Value-added analysis is a statistical method that helps educators measure the impact schools and teachers have on students’ academic progress rates from year to year.
When combined with other student performance measures, value-added analysis provides powerful insight for educators to determine the impact of their curriculum, instruction, programs, and practices on student learning.
Over the last decade, Ohio’s evolving value-added system provides educators with:
- Student growth measure results that are valid and reliable;
- School improvement use via the EVAAS® interactive website tool;
- Transparency of the results used in Ohio’s Accountability System; and,
- Transparency of the results most likely used for future educator evaluation results.
