This research examined year two of an online on-demand professional development in multiple states and districts. Using a quasi-experimental design, the study sought to ascertain whether student gains were sustained in the second year of program participation. Student achievement was examined through randomly matched participating and non-participating schools within districts and states and between districts and states and focused on standardized reading and math scores. Multivariate analysis and effect size calculations verified gains over both years of implementation for participating schools, districts, and states over non-participating PD sites use of Internet-based, on-demand professional learning for improving teacher effectiveness and sustained impacts on student performance.
