The authors examined the degree to which ongoing professional development (PD) for school teachers is associated with more effective teaching practices as measured through teachers’ behaviors in the classroom. The effects of participation in this program on three domains of teacher effectiveness, measured through classroom observations. The domains of teacher effectiveness are planning and preparation, classroom environment, and instruction. The implications of this study indicate that high-quality professional development does not always address all domains of teaching.

Pathways to Teacher Certification: Does It Really Matter When It Comes to Efficacy and Effectiveness?
In this study, the authors compared teacher candidates who followed three pathways leading to certification in adolescence education while attending the same university. A limited number of factors were held constant among pathways, and only factors inherent to the routes were varied. The dependent variables were (1) teacher effectiveness, as measured through Danielson's Observation Scale, and (2) teacher efficacy, as measured through Gibson and Dembo's Teacher Efficacy Scale. No significant differences in efficacy or effectiveness were found.
