The authors use existing literature to identify the key features that make in-service professional development (PD) effective. The authors present these features as the defining features of a recently developed PD program, Classroom Management in Action, which blends online technology, evidence-based practice in positive behavior support, video modeling, self-paced/step-by-step activities, and tools for aiding and measuring fidelity and behavioral outcomes.

The authors report results from studies documenting the program’s social validity, the psychometrics of its online behavioral assessment tool, and its effectiveness based on an initial pilot test using a randomized controlled field trial involving 101 classrooms.
