Florida Value-Added Model (VAM)


Florida's Value-Added Model (VAM) Ratings: VAM scores represent the amount the teacher contributed to student learning growth, on average, among the students they taught by statistically controlling for other factors that impact student learning growth. Only instructors in ELA grades 4-10, mathematics grades 4-8, and Algebra I grades 8-9 receive a VAM score using the state models.

For each district and school, the reports provide information about classroom and non-classroom expenditures, and compare financial efficiency with VAM scores.
