The Evaluation Tool presents a process of self-evaluation to collect, analyze, and share evidence of the actual value professional learning activities are creating for educators and students. In other words, it is time to evaluate the effectiveness of your work. The types of value that are being created include the immediate satisfaction participants experience, the knowledge they gain, the changes in practice they make through applying that knowledge, the impact of those changes on their effectiveness in improving student learning outcomes, and the changes made to beliefs and policies that are justified by such results. By identifying strategies using the continuum tools, you have already begun to consider evidence you might collect. This evaluation tool provides a framework for systematically working with such evidence.
