The purpose of this study was to develop a model for evaluating a professional development school program to enact an evidence-based model for a continuous cycle of program improvement. Guided by the logic model for program evaluation, we developed three survey instruments based on the professional development school standards of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education to collect feedback from seniors just completing the program, from their cooperating teachers, and from program graduates completing their 3rd year of teaching. A total of 115 seniors, 135 cooperating teachers, and 38 graduates completed the surveys. Based on the quantitative and qualitative data from this study, adjustments were made to the program. The findings also provided a baseline for future professional development school program evaluation. (Contains 1 figure and 3 tables.)
