Strategic Data Project Links Student Outcomes to Exposure to High Quality Instruction in Pittsburgh Public Schools

May 15, 2015

During the 2013–14 school year, the Strategic Data Project (SDP) partnered with Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) to conduct a set of diagnostic analyses that documented patterns of students’ high school performance, college readiness, and postsecondary success. For the first time, SDP was able to directly link student outcomes to their exposure to high quality instruction, using data on educator performance from PPS’s multiple-measure system of teacher evaluation.
