Professional Development - The Professional Development component supports teachers' professional development.  The main focus of the project is to develop the skills of teachers to use formative and summative assessments to improve student achievement.  Since successful application of formative and summative assessments require a deep knowledge of the science content students are expected to learn, the project also focuses on strengthening the quality of science teaching by increasing teachers' science content knowledge.  The Director of this project is Dr. Audrey Champagne.
