Title: TNTP Teaching Fellows
Description: This What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) intervention report in the Teacher Training, Evaluation, and Compensation topic area summarizes the research on TNTP Teaching Fellows teachers and their impacts on academic achievement. TNTP Teaching Fellows is a highly selective route to teacher certification that aims to prepare people to teach in high-need public schools. The program recruits professionals seeking to change careers and recent college graduates who are not certified teachers.

After reviewing the available research, the WWC found one study of TNTP Teaching Fellows teachers and their impacts on academic achievement that meets WWC group design standards. The study included 4,116 middle and high school students in nine school districts in eight states. Based on this study, the WWC found that TNTP Teaching Fellows teachers have no discernible effects on the mathematics achievement of middle and high school students.
