Claiming Guidance

Shortly before the launch of fall and spring state testing, teachers will use the teacher student claiming (TSC) process to claim students they taught during the school year. Once teachers have completed and approved their claiming rosters, the rosters will be used in calculating teacher value-added scores (TVAAS). Teacher value-added data are used for a number of diagnostic and evaluative purposes, including teacher evaluations. The claiming process plays a crucial role in ensuring that we have accurate data for calculating teacher value-added reports and evaluation composites.
