In an era of exhaustive teacher evaluation instruments, it was inevitable that quick-and-concentrated classroom walkthroughs would make a comeback. Many K-12 districts are embracing the capacity of the walkthrough to add more freedom, specificity, and personalization to the process.
To support this movement, OnCourse Systems for Education has released a full walkthrough upgrade as part of the OnCourse Evaluate staff performance platform. This 100% cloud-based release comes at no cost to current users. The new feature-set equips staff to:
Design custom walkthrough forms
Conduct walkthroughs from any browser, Chromebook, or iOS mobile device
Collect artifacts and pictures
Publish results to teachers online
Discover trends through school-wide reporting
“I think evaluators will be thrilled at how intuitive and full-featured this upgrade is. Of course, we all love the fact that it comes at no extra cost,” says OnCourse CEO Chris Contini.
OnCourse has been a trend-setter in the world of teacher evaluation, offering the first instrument-agnostic platform that supported auto-calculating SGOs and (optional) integration with their Student Information System.
“Helping educators through paperwork challenges has always been at the heart of our mission,” says Contini. “As schools continue to adapt, we will continue innovating to bring extraordinary technology to educators who need it.”
OnCourse Evaluate can be fitted with any evaluation instrument (complying with copyright restrictions) and fully-compliant with all AchieveNJ evaluation guidelines.
