Next Steps – Professional Learning

Educators’ professional learning – the strategies, events, and activities undertaken – was the most frequently cited category of educator action for improving student performance.

Professional learning frequently includes:

  • Assessment practice
  • Math content knowledge
  • Curriculum delivery scope and sequence paralleling student continuum of mathematical development
  • Pedagogy in the classroom

To impact student performance, professional learning opportunities should be focused, targeted, and provide self-reflective, collaborative experiences for educators.
