A new study examines the impact of assessment-based professional development on teachers’ motivational characteristics.
Dr. Corey Palermo, Vice President of Performance Assessment Scoring at Measurement Incorporated, teamed with Dr. Margareta Maria Thomson at NC State University to investigate teacher motivation associated with professional development (PD) in the context of a large-scale assessment program. From 2009–2012, over 200 teachers received PD in item writing, item review, and anchor setting (i.e., selecting responses that exemplify each rubric score point).
Dr. Corey Palermo studied over 800 middle school students to understand how PEG Writing affects student's argumentative writing performance. He found that students who used PEG Writing produced higher quality essays.
