Two Reports on Teacher Quality in Illinois - The Distribution of Teacher Quality in Illinois examines the distribution of all 140,000 teachers in 2002-03 among Illinois’ public schools using five teacher attributes that have been shown in previous research to be related to student performance. The authors create a composite measure of teacher quality that they term the Teacher Quality Index (TQI) to combine these teacher-quality characteristics into a standardized index. The report then uses a school’s TQI as an indicator of average teacher quality at the school. A second report – Examining the Distribution and Impact of Teacher Quality in Illinois – continues the authors' exploration of the TQI, its distribution, and its relationship to student performance outcomes.
