Value-Added and Schools of Education

Institutions of Higher Education are not escaping unscathed from the value-added debate. PK-16 and PK-20 projects are cropping up in various states - examples can be found in Oregon, Massachusetts, Texas, and Wisconsin. Education Trust published a report in Spring 2004 that (among many other things) specifically addressed teacher education programs by arguing that value-added analysis be used to improve teachers preparation programs. Louisiana is specifically targeting teacher education as a prime candidate for value-added analysis. The Value-Added Teacher Preparation Program Assessment Model provides a detailed description of the program rollout.
