Ongoing, high-quality professional development is not a luxury-- it's a necessity. School leaders, teachers, and staff must be continually learning, growing and honing their craft in order ensure students receive the outstanding education they deserve. Unfortunately, bringing in outside facilitators to lead professional development workshops can be prohibitively expensive at a time when many school budgets are squeezed. Sending staff to workshops hosted off-campus is likewise not only expensive, but difficult to schedule. PDXpert's complete professional development workshop modules solves these common problems by offering schools everything they need to host high-quality, professional development workshops in house, with minimal preparation and at a fraction of the cost of hiring third-party workshop facilitators.

Each easy-to-use PDXpert turn-key solution includes the following components:

  • Pre-session and planning materials
  • Workshop agenda
  • Presentation outline
  • PowerPoint presentation with presenter's notes
  • Attendee handouts
  • Follow-up activities and implementation guides 
  • Evaluation forms
  • Certificates of completion

Resources included with each PDXpert include a presenter's binder with printouts of all the workshop materials, as well as a CD-ROM and USB flash drive with electronic and downloadable files.  All PDXpert workshops are aligned with Learning Forward (NSDC) Standards for Professional Learning.

Tips and Tactics for Better Tests and Homework is a 3-hour long workshop (which can also be presented as multiple shorter sessions) covering the following topics:

  • Considerations for Giving Tests
    • Tests That Boost Student Scores
    • Student Skills That Improve Test Results c. Pre-Test Tips
  • Considerations for Giving Assignments
    • Homework History
    • Homework That Makes a Difference
    • Best Practices for Assigning Homework d. Educators’ Three-Fold Purpose

PDXpert workshops are adaptable and can be presented year after year, making them an excellent value. As an added bonus, you will receive one free copy of the laminated reference guide, Test Preparation: A Teacher's Guide by Joseph Casbarro with your purchase-- a $12.95 value!
