Teacher Value-Added Summary

Interpreting the Data

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no testing in the spring of 2020, so the Value-Added reports changed as follows:

  • No value-added measures are available for 2019-20. However, fall EOC scores (excluding Biology I and U.S. History) for 2019-20 are included in the 2020-21 reports.
  • District, school, and teacher value-added measures for 2020-21 were created across a two-year period because there was limited testing in the 2020 school year.

For more information about changes to reporting, see What's New in 2021 and Statistical Models and Business Rules.

This report is a summary of data from the Teacher Value-Added reports for individual subjects, so you can interpret the data the same way you would in those reports.

Because the Teacher Value-Added Summary displays data from all the teacher's value-added reports, it can be useful in comparing the growth index values across grades, subjects, and courses. All index values are on the same scale, so they can be compared directly. As you compare the data, consider these questions:

  • Which grade and subject or course had the highest growth index?
  • Which had the lowest?
  • If there is a large difference between the values, what factors might have contributed to the difference?
