The staff development program is over. The consultant has been paid, teacher attendance was good, exit surveys suggested that teachers enjoyed the day, thought the consultant was competent, and the information was useful, relevant, and practical. Now what? Will the training make a difference? Will teaching practices change? Will the skills presented during the program be implemented with fidelity? How many teachers will use the skills? Which skills? Will students’ motivation to learn and academic achievement increase?
Consultants at the Professional Development Alliance can work with school administrators to develop a customized design to assess the impact of professional development relative to teaching and student learning.
