This report describes the first year of the funded professional development activities in the Title IIB Math and Science Partnership (MSP) projects in the Northwest Region and the evaluation models. The analysis is structured around the factors of professional development associated with changes in teacher knowledge and practice. This study is intended to provide policymakers, state agency staff, and university and school personnel interested in potential Title IIB MSP projects with information about how the MSP program has been implemented and evaluated in the Northwest Region in the first cohort of the funded projects. Three research questions structure this report: (1) What is the nature of the professional development provided by the Title IIB MSP projects in the Northwest Region? (2) what is the nature of the evaluation of the Title IIB MSP projects in the Northwest Region? and (3) under what conditions is the development of experimental or quasi-experimental models of evaluation appropriate and successful? The following are appended: (1) Analysis of Title IIB Mathematics and Science Partnerships professional development projects by state; (2) Analysis of Title IIB MSP Professional Development evaluation projects by state; (3) Interview protocol; (4) Methodology; and (5) Comparison of professional development criteria: Council of Chief State School Officers and Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory.
