We’re pleased to launch the Educator Impact Laboratory this week. This is a center at Mathematica designed to expand our collaborations with state and local education agencies around the challenging task of measuring the impact that teachers and principals have on their students and using this information in creative ways to improve outcomes. We’re very excited to partner with leading researchers, academic affiliates from several institutions.
This website will be continually updated with new information and resources so check back often. In addition to the Ed Impact blog where this message appears, we release new publications all the time, including issue briefs and more wonky reports and journal articles. In addition, we’re promoting the use of open source code for common analytic tasks related to educator impact and plan to build out this resource over time. We also hope to add more explainers and videos as well as demos for new tools we’re working on that help education leaders be more effective at using data to make decisions. If you want to talk to someone about getting technical advice, working with your organization, or working with us, please email us.
