NBER Working Paper No. 11154 Issued in February 2005 NBER Program(s):Public Economics, Economics of Education.

We use student achievement gains to estimate teacher value-added, our measure of teacher quality. The analysis reveals substantial variation in the quality of instruction.Overview of research This paper presents the research evidence underpinning the education inspection framework. The review draws on a range of sources, including both our own research programme and a review of existing evidence bases. The review is structured to provide the evidence base that underlies each of the four key judgements for the proposed new framework: quality of education.Assessing Research Quality.
