This report presents results of a study completed in fall 2004 by Inverness Research Associates on behalf of the National Writing Project (NWP). The study was designed to satisfy a U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) requirement that programs assess participants' satisfaction with their professional development experiences, and also assess the impact of professional development programs on participants' subsequent classroom practices. Participants in the study were teachers attending summer 2003 Invitational Institutes held at 169 sites of the NWP. These institutes are the core programs by which each NWP site works with teachers (K-college) who will serve as the "teacher-consultants" providing leadership for the site and extensive professional development service to the schools and districts within the local regions of each. NWP teacher-consultants coordinate and deliver professional development activities in schools throughout the year. (Contains 3 tables.)
