Value Added Comparison Report
Value-Added provides data on student growth on state assessments. At the teacher level, it is a required element of the new evaluation system. At the building and district level, it represents the fourth component of Ohio’s accountability system. Ohio's Value-Added system uses statistical methods to measure teachers', schools’ and districts’ impact on the rate of student progress from year to year. This growth measurement will enable schools and districts to better determine the impact of their curriculum and instructional practices on student achievement.
