NCES 2024039 Teacher Attrition and Mobility Results From the 2021–22 Teacher Follow-up Survey to the National Teacher and Principal Survey
This report presents selected findings from the Current and Former Teacher Data Files of the 2021–22 Teacher Follow-up Survey (TFS). The TFS is a longitudinal component of the National Teacher and Principal Survey (NTPS). The 2021–22 TFS was conducted as a follow up to the 2020–21 NTPS to provide attrition and mobility information about teachers in K–12 public and private schools. The purpose was to assess how many teachers from the 2020–21 school year still worked as a teacher in the same school during the 2021–22 school year (“stayers”), how many had moved to become a teacher in another school (“movers”), and how many had left the teaching profession (“leavers”).

NCEE 2024001 Practical Strategies for Recruiting Districts and Schools for Education Impact Studies
This brief will help researchers newer to school-based impact studies recruit districts and schools that represent the study's population of interest so that the findings are more actionable for educators. Practical strategies are provided on four topics that may play an increasingly important role in a district or school's willingness to participate in a study: attention to urgent priorities and needs, limited staff capacity, commitment to fairness and collaborative practices, and protection of student and staff privacy.

NCES 2022003 Restricted-Use Data Files and Documentation (FRSS 110): 2019-20 Public School Use of Educational Technology for Instruction
This product contains data from the Fast Response Survey System (FRSS) survey titled “Use of Educational Technology for Instruction.” The restricted-use data file and related data documentation provide nationally representative data from elementary and secondary public schools about their use of technology for teaching and learning during the 2019–20 school year. Data were collected in the spring of 2020 from approximately 800 schools. Questions were asked about conditions before the coronavirus pandemic started. Schools that completed the survey after the coronavirus pandemic started were asked to report about pre-pandemic experiences. More specifically, schools were asked about their technology resources and ways that these resources were used to teach. Data reflect questions about whether schools have computers for each student, if students can take school-provided computers home, the number of computers in the school and where they are in the school, the quality of computers and software used for teaching and learning, how well internet connections work in the parts of the school used for teaching, and online resources used for teaching and learning at the school. Data also include answers to questions about challenges teachers face using technology for teaching, how teachers are trained to use technology for teaching, the types of staff who work with teachers to make better use of technology for teaching and learning, and how student learning is affected by the use of educational technology. Respondents were principals or other school staff who knew how technology was used at the school for teaching and learning. Documentation provides information about the purpose of the study, the sample design, the data collection procedures, the data processing procedures, response rates, imputation, weighting and standard error calculation and use, the data files and codebooks, and the file layout of the ASCII data file. The ASCII data and a SAS version of the data file are also provided. Note that the public-use version of the data under NCES-2022011 has much of the same information. The restricted-use file has an NCES school ID and Census region information not included in the public-use data.

NCEE 2023002 Federal Support for Attracting, Training, and Retaining Educators: How Districts Receiving Teacher and School Leader Grants Use Their Funds
Ensuring students' equitable access to talented educators remains a national priority. Congress established the Teacher and School Leader (TSL) Incentive competitive grant program in 2015 to help address this goal, providing financial support to selected school districts to improve their systems for hiring, supporting, and retaining educators, particularly in high-need schools. Grantees can use TSL funds flexibly to improve their basic infrastructure for generating and managing data or on strategies that use these data to improve their educator workforce. This report provides the first comprehensive review of the activities 2017 TSL grantee districts prioritized with their TSL funds and how well these activities aligned with key aspects of the program. The report is based on interviews conducted near the end of the initial 3-year grant period for the 24 districts that were part of the 2017 TSL cohort and is part of a broader evaluation of TSL required by Congress.

WWC 2023003 Reading Apprenticeship® Intervention Report
This What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) intervention report summarizes the research on the effectiveness of Reading Apprenticeship®, a professional development program that aims to help teachers improve student literacy skills in core academic subjects, including English, mathematics, science, and social studies. Reading Apprenticeship® trains teachers to model reading comprehension strategies and help students practice these strategies. Based on five studies that meet WWC standards, the WWC found moderate evidence that Reading Apprenticeship® positively impacted student science achievement and overall grade point average, compared with students whose teachers did not receive Reading Apprenticeship® professional development. The WWC found uncertain effects on student achievement in life sciences, social studies, literacy, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and mathematics.

REL 2023147 The Louisiana Believe and Prepare Educator Preparation Reform: Findings from the Pilot and Early Implementation Years
Believe and Prepare is a teacher preparation reform implemented by the Louisiana Department of Education in collaboration with school systems and teacher preparation programs across the state. It was piloted in the 2014/15 school year and became mandatory in July 2018 for incoming teacher candidates in all 18 institutions of higher education that offer traditional teacher preparation programs. The reform focused on competency-based curricula, extended clinical experiences, and rigorous mentor teacher training. A central requirement of the reform is that teacher candidates must participate in a yearlong residency with a mentor teacher. This replaced the prior shorter-term student teaching requirement, typically six weeks.

To explore the extent to which the reform is contributing to expected improvement in outcomes for early career teachers, this study examined the association between the reform and in-service teacher performance ratings, teacher retention, student test scores, teacher competency, and the likelihood of three placement outcomes (being placed in the school where the teacher completed a residency, filling a teaching position in a shortage area, and being placed in a rural school). Teachers who completed a program that had implemented Believe and Prepare were 2 percentage points more likely than teachers who completed a program that had not implemented it to stay in Louisiana for at least one year and 7 percentage points more likely to stay in the same school district for at least three years. Grade 4–8 students whose teachers completed a preparation program that had implemented Believe and Prepare during the pilot years scored 0.04 standard deviation lower on English language arts tests than students whose teachers completed a program that had not implemented it. Other teacher outcomes such as in-service performance ratings, competency as measured by Praxis II scores, school placement, and job assignment were not statistically different between teachers who completed a program that had implemented Believe and Prepare and teachers who completed other programs.

NCES 2022080 A Retrospective Look at U.S. Education Statistics
This commemorative guide is intended to provide a better understanding of the history and use of federal education statistics that have been collected and reported by the federal education statistics agency (now the National Center for Education Statistics) since 1868. The “statistical profiles” in this report use updated historical trend data from 120 Years of American Education: A Statistical Portrait to offer an in-depth look at what each statistic measures, how it has been collected over the years, and what the data reveal about the statistic. Statistics covered in the report include enrollment in elementary and secondary schools; high school graduates and graduation rates, and postsecondary student costs and finances. Readers can browse these profiles online and download PDFs of individual profiles.
