Prepared For

District of Columbia Public Schools

Mathematica Policy Research supports the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) for IMPACT, a teacher evaluation system that was enacted during the 2009-2010 school year. Mathematica designed value-added models to measure the effectiveness of teachers and schools in DC and has produced annual estimates of educators’ contributions to student achievement in grades 4 through 8 since the 2008-2009 school year. These estimates are combined with other measures of educator effectiveness in DCPS’s IMPACT system.
