Policymakershave four options for addressing co-teaching in a value-added model: the partial credit method, the teacher team method, the full roster method, and the full roster-plus method. The first two methods are impractical, and show that the last two methods are empirically similar.
This working paper outlines four options available to policymakers for addressing co-teaching in a value-added model: the partial credit method, the teacher team method, the full roster method, and the full roster-plus method. The authors discuss why the first two methods are impractical, and show that the last two methods are empirically similar.
