OERC Researchers to Present "Extended Testing in Non-Tested Areas for Student Growth Measures for Teacher and Principal Evaluation Frameworks" at AERA
Presented by: 
Suzanne Franco, Jill Lindsey, Marsha Lewis and Ani Ruhil
What: 

Dr. Suzanne Franco will present "Extended Testing in Non-Tested Areas for Student Growth Measures for Teacher  and Principal Evaluation Frameworks" at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) annual meeting. This poster session highlights formative findings from 23 LEAs in Ohio’s implementation of extended testing in non-tested areas for Student Growth Measures (SGM). In 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 Ohio offered a mini-grant to LEAs agreeing to administer extended testing for VAM scores in grades and content areas not represented in the state testing. The mini-grant allowed the state to create testing pools sufficient to produce teacher-level VAM. ACT End of Course (EOC), Terra Nova, MAPS, and/or Star assessments were administered. This two year study will provide qualitative and quantitative findings to the local and national discussions about student growth measures and teacher/principal effectiveness.
