National Center for Teacher Effectiveness Main Study Archival Version

DOI

The National Center for Teacher Effectiveness Main Study (NCTE) encompasses three years of data collection and observations of math instruction in approximately 50 schools and 300 classrooms. Data were collected from classroom observations, student assessments, and teacher surveys. Teacher background information includes number of years of experience, education, race, and gender. Student respondent demographic and household information includes race, gender, household makeup, free and reduced lunch status, English proficiency, number of books in the household, and number of rooms in the home. The data are not weighted and there are no weight variables present in the data. ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created variable labels and/or value labels.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.. Presence of Common Scales: Mathematical Knowledge for Teaching (MKT), Mathematical Quality of Instruction (MQI), Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS), Tripod Student Survey Response Rates: 56 percent Elementary (4th and 5th Grade) math teachers and students. Smallest Geographic Unit: District NCTE partnered with 4 public school districts, which were chosen due to prior established relationships. The study targeted 4th and 5th grade math teachers from all public schools where principals agreed to allow for the randomization of class rosters to teachers in year 3 of the study. Teachers were recruited from schools where there were at least 2 or more math teachers in either 4th or 5th grade. 2016-08-08 Dataset 5 has been updated to exclude the administrative data for students from District 11 (n=2,327). In addition, the original codebook has been released as separate codebooks for each respective dataset.2016-02-10 Additional documentation, a PI-supplied technical report, has been added to the collection. Funding insitution(s): United States Department of Education. Institute of Education Sciences (R305C090023). coded video observation, cognitive assessment test, mail questionnaire Additional information about the National Center for Teacher Effectiveness Main Study can be found at the National Center for Teacher Effectiveness Web site.
