Professional Learning Diagnostic Assessment: Beta Test

How can your school system better connect professional learning to the everyday work of teaching—and to a systemwide strategy for student success?

We studied four school systems that have redefined professional learning and seen improved student outcomes. Our new Teacher Professional Learning Diagnostic Assessment helps school system leaders evaluate how they use resources like people, time, and money to ignite the engine of teacher and student learning, and compare their practices to the case study systems. 

Thinking about elements like curricula, collaboration, and feedback, you will rate your own system and the tool will give you comparison scores. Based on your scores, the tool provides actionable next steps and links to the tools you need to get started. You can learn more about what we call "Connected Professional Learning" in our white paper, Igniting the Learning Engine.

This tool is currently in the beta phase, and we need your help to make it better! To participate in our test, the process is simple:

  • When you log in, you will see a welcome screen with a few instructions and questions
  • You may explore the tool on your own time, taking as few as 2 minutes or as many as you like
  • At the end, you will answer a few questions to share your experience with the tool
  • To thank you for your time, we will give a $100 Amazon gift certificate to one of the participants. To be entered to win, you can provide your email address at the end of the test, but all responses will remain anonymous.


If you prefer, you can explore the tool without the testing questions: Teacher Professional Learning Diagnostic Assessment (without beta test questions)
