About the evaluation
Launched in 2019, the New Tech Network Quality Assurance Infrastructure (NTN QAI) was developed in consultation with Tom Guskey. Guskey is a professor, American Educational Research Association (AERA) Fellow, and author of 18 books and over 200 articles, including the seminal text Evaluating Professional Development (2000). The NTN QAI provides a framework to understand the professional learning experiences of NTN educators and evaluate conditions for lasting change. The NTN model provides support over a sustained duration (see Darling-Hammond, Hyler, and Gardner, 2017) and because professional learning is not an isolated process, neither is evaluation of professional learning.
