This study found that for schools that leverage the PD 360 experience, there were significant and meaningful gains in student performance for math and reading, which brought their district performance averages up. The biggest predictors for gains in student performance were found to be minutes per user – teacher time using PD 360, and programs viewed and re-viewed – teacher study with PD 360. Overall, the study points to statistically significant advantages for schools that used PD 360 compared to district benchmarks.
