Linda Darling-Hammond says Value Added Adds Little Value to Teacher Evaluations. – I. Lieszkovszky

Lieszkovszky, Ida.  “Linda Darling-Hammond says Value Added Adds Little Value to Teacher Evaluations.”  State Impact, Ohio, Eye on Education.  January 28, 2013.  Retrieved from:  http://stateimpact.npr.org/ohio/2013/01/28/linda-darling-hammond-says-value-added-adds-little-value-to-teacher-evaluations/

The Stanford University professor and leading education expert discusses, in a Cleveland radio interview, how she was once very excited how value added, but that as facts and evidence accumulated she no longer considers it reliable.

“I’m a researcher who was very interested and enthusiastic about value added a few years ago, who has, among many other researchers, found that it has a lot more difficulty and problems than we realized,” Darling-Hammond said. “So the National Research Council has recently come out to say value added should not be used, because it’s very unstable. It’s unreliable. It turns out that it’s biased.”
