At the request of Pittsburgh Public Schools and the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, Mathematica has developed value-added models that aim to estimate the contributions of individual teachers and schools to the achievement of their students. This report summarizes Mathematica's current use of value-added models to assess educational quality in Pittsburgh Public Schools, updating our 2012 report on the same topic.
