Rating the effectiveness of different approaches to math professional development

47 Studies...

...included an intervention, program, or product focused primarily on providing math professional development to teachers; and used a relevant design (randomized controlled trial or quasi-experimental design).

643 Studies...

...included an intervention related to math; were published between January 2006 and July 2012 or were identified in Yoon et al. (2007) as having met standards similar to earlier WWC evidence standards; examined students in grades K–12; and were conducted in the United States.

2 Studies...

...met WWC evidence standards (version 2.1), with or without reservations, and showed positive impacts on student math proficiency.

5 Studies...

...included an intervention, program, or product focused primarily on providing math professional development to teachers; and used a relevant design (randomized controlled trial or quasi-experimental design).

32 Studies...

...were relevant to this brief (15 out of the 47 studies from the previous screening level were excluded because the professional development approach was either generic professional development that did not focus on math—for example, school reform focused on strategic plans—or professional development that was associated with implementing a specific curriculum); and were reviewed using WWC evidence standards (version 2.1).

A REL Southeast comprehensive literature review identified 643 studies of professional development interventions related to math in grades K–12. Thirty-two of the studies used a research design for assessing the effectiveness of math professional development approaches, and five of those met What Works Clearinghouse evidence standards. Of the five, only two found positive effects on student math proficiency.
