We hope you can join us this Wednesday, March 13, 2013 for the Applied
Statistics Workshop in CGIS Knafel 354. Gary
Louis Berkman Professor of Economics from the Department of Economics at
Harvard University, will give a presentation entitled "Predictive Effects
of Teachers and Schools on Test Scores, College Attendance, and Earnings".
A light lunch will be served at 12 pm and the talk will begin at 12.15.
> I study predictive eﬀects of teachers and schools on test scores in fourth
> through eighth grade and outcomes later in life such as college attendance
> and earnings. The predictive eﬀects have the following form: predict the
> fraction of a classroom attending college at age 20 given the test score
> for a diﬀerent classroom in the same school with the same teacher, and
> given the test score for a classroom in the same school with a diﬀerent
> teacher. I would like to have predictive eﬀects that condition on averages
> over many classrooms, with and without the same teacher. I set up a factor
> model which, under certain assumptions, makes this feasible. Administrative
> school district data n combination with tax data were used to calculate
> estimates and do inference.
