Professional Development

A higher degree of training for the teachers leads to greater results for the students. In the area of Professional Development, we instruct educators on assessment practices so they can better prepare students and improve on their own teaching techniques.

Measurement Incorporated has worked closely with state departments of education and other clients to provide large-scale staff development opportunities to teachers and other employees. Led by our experienced leaders, our programs are personalized and use a variety of technologies to enhance the learning experience.

Our Professional Development Programs utilize a range of media and approaches, including DVD/CD-based training modules, Web-based training modules, and face-to-face training.


Workshops

Led by an experienced educator, this face-to-face program tackles assessment topics including: Item Development, Performance Item Scoring, Test Administration, and Score Interpretation. Our presentations demystify assessments and promote more effective teaching and learning in the classroom.
