Title: Applying Survival Analyses Techniques to Educational Accountability
Author(s): Ji Zeng* and Joseph A. Martineau
Companies: Michigan Department of Education and National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment, Inc.
Keywords: survival analysis ; educational accountability ; school effectiveness

This paper further investigates the possible application of survival analysis techniques to educational accountability, and in particular, how the incorporation of survival rate would influence the school effectiveness judgment in comparison to some of the commonly used Value-Added Models. Such exploration includes the comparison of using different time frame (3 grade level span vs. 7 available grade level span). This paper is informative for criterion-referenced measurement of school effectiveness in that next generation assessment systems are focused on the criterion of college and career readiness in high school and staying on track in lower grade levels.
