Report: Effects of Professional Learning Opportunities on Learner Growth - Initial Analysis

Beginning in the 2017-18 School Year, Lindsay Unified School District (LUSD) launched a strategy to provide personalized professional learning opportunities to its learning facilitators (i.e., teachers) to support the development of the district’s Adult Learning Curriculum (ALC) as part of a Teacher and School Leader (TSL) grant initiative. To measure the effectiveness of LUSD’s professional learning approach on learner (i.e., student) growth, this initial analysis addresses three primary research questions using data from the first two years of the grant: (1) how did engaging in professional learning affect learner achievement? (2) which combinations of professional learning emerged in terms of type and dose? and (3) which combinations had the greatest effect on learner outcomes? The conclusions from this report will inform the direction of subsequent analyses and serve as a first indication of the effectiveness of the professional learning opportunities implemented under the TSL grant initiative. View the executive summary and an accessible version of this report.
