Client Growth

In January 2014, OEPE calculated scores for non-tenured teachers.  Scores for PAR teachers were calculated in order to make a comparison.  In every FfT Domain, PAR Client Teachers’ averages were lower.  A similar analysis was conducted in May.  At that point, the change in performance of PAR clients was higher than the average change in performance of non-tenured teachers in every Domain.
