MyTeachingPartner™ Pre-K
Teacher Training, Evaluation, and Compensation

As of February 2018 no studies of MyTeachingPartner™ Pre-K that fall within the scope of the Teacher Training, Evaluation, and Compensation review protocol meet What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) group design standards. Because no studies meet WWC group design standards at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of MyTeachingPartner™ Pre-K. Research that meets WWC design standards is needed to determine the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of this intervention.
MyTeachingPartner™ Pre-K is a professional development program for early education teachers that incorporates four resources, used individually or together, to provide teachers with the knowledge and skills to engage in more effective student interactions. First, a video library provides annotated examples of high-quality teacher–student interactions. Second, an interactive training uses the video library to practice and discuss effective teacher–student interactions. Third, a three-credit college course aims to improve teachers’ knowledge about interactions that improve student learning. Finally, a trained coach offers web-mediated coaching on classroom instruction every 2 weeks during the school year. The activities in MyTeachingPartner™ Pre-K are structured according to the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS), a teacher observation instrument that measures quality of instruction.
