On June 27, 2012, as part of IRP’s annual Summer Research Workshop, three researchers participated in a roundtable discussion of teacher value-added measures. Raj Chetty presented outcomes from a long-term study of the effects of teachers on students from elementary school through early adulthood. Jesse Rothstein explored the potential dangers of using value-added measures to make teacher personnel decisions. Finally, Eric Hanushek looked at policy implications from a different perspective, exploring why and how value-added measures can be used most effectively. This set of articles summarizes the three presentations.
