WWC IRTTEC675 TNTP Teaching Fellows
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.

NCES 2014077 Teacher Attrition and Mobility: Results From the 2012-13 Teacher Follow-up Survey
This First Look report provides some selected findings from the 2012-13 Teacher Follow-up Survey (TFS) along with data tables and methodological information. The TFS is a follow-up of a sample of the elementary and secondary school teachers who participated in the previous year’s Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS). The TFS sample includes teachers who leave teaching in the year after the SASS data collection and those who continue to teach either in the same school as last year or in a different school. The purpose of the Teacher Follow-up Survey is to determine how many teachers remained at the same school, moved to another school or left the profession in the year following the SASS administration.

NCES 2012306 2011-12 Beginning Teacher Longitudinal Brochure
The Beginning Teacher Longitudinal Study (BTLS) is a study of a group of public school teachers who began teaching in 2007 or 2008. The study has followed this cohort for four 4 years. The 2011-12 year is the fifth and final year.

The information gathered will permit a better understanding of how beginning teachers respond to different transitions. These transitions might include life transitions (i.e., changes in marital status, moving, having children) or career transitions (i.e., moving to a different school, teaching a different grade or subject, becoming a mentor, exiting teaching to pursue a nonteaching career).

BTLS is the only study that follows beginning teachers from all around the United States. The unique value of this study comes from having information about the same people collected over time, those who provided data about their first year of teaching in Schools and Staffing Survey in 2007-08. The sample for this study was selected to be representative of the entire population of public school teachers who began teaching in 2007 or 2008.

WWC QRTAP0929 Evaluation of Teacher Advancement Program (TAP) in Chicago
The WWC quick review of the report "An Evaluation of the Teacher Advancement Program (TAP) in Chicago" reviews a study that examined whether the Chicago Teacher Advancement Program, which provides financial incentives for teachers, leads to improved student achievement and teacher retention. The study analyzed data on more than 67,000 students in grades 4 through 8 and on more than 8,000 teachers in about 260 elementary schools in the Chicago Public Schools system. Academic achievement in reading and math was measured using the Illinois Standards Achievement Test, administered in spring of the second study year. Teacher retention was measured as the percentage of teachers who returned to their district and school after the second study year. Study authors found that, compared with a group of matched comparison schools, students at the 16 Teacher Advancement Program schools did not have significantly higher scores on state reading or mathematics tests. The authors reported no significant effect of the Teacher Advancement Program on teacher retention at either the school or district level. The WWC rated the research described in this report as meets WWC evidence standards with reservations but offers a word of caution to readers that the groups of students, teachers, and schools compared in the analysis may have differed from each other in ways not controlled for in the analysis.

NCES 2000152 Progress Through the Teacher Pipeline: 1992-93 College Graduates and Elementary/Secondary School Teaching as of 1997
This report is the second in a series of reports that follows 1992-93 college graduates' progress through the teacher pipeline using data from the Second Follow-up of the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:93/97). The first report, entitled Out of the Lecture Hall and Into the Classroom: 1992-93 College Graduates and Elementary/Secondary School Teaching (NCES 96-899), focused on graduates' transitions into teaching 1 year after college graduation. This report focuses on the academic characteristics and preparation for teaching of those who took various steps toward teaching and is organized by a conceptual "teacher pipeline" that represents a teacher's career. The pipeline includes preparatory activities-considering teaching, student teaching as an undergraduate, becoming certified to teach, applying for teaching jobs-as well as teaching experiences and plans for teaching in the future.
