Value Added Assessment Study
This was put out by Arizona State University. A school that I am familiar with, especially the Mary Lou Fulton School of Education. While I chose not to continue on with ASU, I did have respect for the intelligence and hard work of the professors in the education department.
Here is an excellent video which explains Value-Added Assessments when looking at schools where it has been widely used in Houston, Texas. I suggest people who are interested in this topic, especially teachers, watch and understand what Value-Added actually is.
