Reviewers can use this to help them determine if a PDP meets all of the requirements or not. Teachers writing their PDP can use this to help them determine what reviewers are looking for in a PDP.
· Quality Educator Interactive – Link to the QEI website. This is one of the websites you can use to write your PDP, update your artifacts and evidence, find reviewer team members, etc. Note: It is recommended to use the bronze package, which is free. There is a gold package but it costs money and the only difference between the two packages is the gold package provides tech support, which your school should provide for you.
