How do we measure the impact of professional development for teachers?
An Effective Professional Development Plan Starts with Goals and Objectives
Every district wants their professional development to be effective – but how do you measure this effectiveness? The key is to track progress toward both individual teacher goals and broader school district initiatives.
Alludo’s learning modules encourage teachers to set personal development goals and make it easy – and fun! – to track results. We also make it simple for school districts to measure this progress.
Wondering where to start when creating your professional development goals? We covered six examples to inspire your district in our latest blog. Ready to dive deeper? Click below to explore our complete guide to setting and hitting district-wide professional development goals.

Educational Services Leaders
And hats off to all of you Educational Services and Curriculum Instruction Leaders as you support your teachers and students with PD opportunities in unprecedented times.
TOSA resources are going down and educational and emotional demands on you and your teachers are going up.
To affect teacher, school, and student performance, you need a single place to serve, capture, and report on the health of the professional development offering across your district.
And you learners out there, you put your heart and soul into all that you do. You need to be able to choose the learning pathways that are meaningful to you. You want to focus on things that matter – outcomes. And you want a safe place to learn, try, and try again until you succeed. And let’s not forget to celebrate when you close an achievement gap.
You know best how you can have classroom impact, and the old ways of teacher PD (like endless training workshops) don’t let you do your thing! You need choice!
To connect K-12 professional learning to classroom impact, there are a few essentials.
