​Using PVAAS

The PVAAS Statewide Team for the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) provides statewide professional learning, resource development, and technical assistance for the statewide implementation of the Pennsylvania Value-Added Assessment System (PVAAS) in response to the needs of PDE.

A range of statewide professional learning opportunities are provided each school year to Pennsylvania’s educators. These are offered through a variety of methods, including on-site training sessions at local IUs, webinars, and conference sessions. These professional learning opportunities are published each school year.
