Research

PDA is a unique computer-based technology designed to align professional development and coaching with teacher/administrator needs. PDA collects survey data, professional development details, and student formative and state test data for the purpose of linking professional development to student outcomes. PDA’s surveys have been validated as measuring the intended constructs and have been shown to perform reliably over time. Student data and information is uploaded via a secure FTP portal to a secure FTP server.

PDA is host to a growing PD data base supervised by a Research Scientist and a team of education professionals. Professional development data within PDA serves as a resource to research ways to improve outcomes for kids, and to ensure high levels of competency in the areas identified in the work of Timperley, Wilson, Barrar, and Fung (2007).
