Impacts of Teacher Quality on Student Learning (CIES 2018 presentation)

This presentation was presented as part of the panel, The Equity Initiative: Advancing Equity at the Classroom Level, at CIES 2018.

By using more sophisticated program monitoring methodologies, it is possible to embed high-quality applied research and formative evaluation into programming, at very little cost, and at scale. This presentation showcases data collected from the Reading and Numeracy Activity (RANA) project implemented by FHI 360 in Northern Nigeria. Presenters identify/quantify teacher effectiveness using a teacher value-added model (VAM) where teachers’ performance during the school year is evaluated based on their students’ learning growth from the beginning through the end of the year using EGRA and EGMA assessments.
