Simplify your digital observation and evaluation experience

• 100% digital functionality lets you perform observations on Apple or Android mobile devices, which means no more fumbling with a printed observation template.

• Powerful observation editing makes it possible to edit, archive, filter, and search for observations with ease, simplifying the way you manage the observation process.

Easily set up your teacher growth plan

Observation 360’s Process tool allows you to create a custom growth plan for every teacher or group of teachers. Define tasks, meetings, assignments, and observations—whatever activities your teachers need for an effective growth plan.

Create personalized PD for every teacher

Expanded content alignment allows you to customize professional learning for each teacher, based on what you see in their classrooms. You can assign professional development and state standards/Common Core training content, recommend Edivation courses or online PLCs, attach files, and provide external links.

Imagine an observation where you can actually observe

If every observation feels like a juggling act, relax—we’ve got you covered.

Evidence 360 is a note-taking app available with Observation 360 that lets you focus on what’s going on in the classroom around you rather than fumbling with the observation template that’s in your hands. The result is observations that are more fair, accurate, and supportive.

TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS FRAMEWORK

Turn observations into transformative learning experiences

The Teacher Effectiveness Framework (TEF) is a comprehensive evaluation framework that includes a set of quality indicators aligned to the InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards—the de facto teacher development standard at many of the best teaching colleges and universities around the US.

TEF gives you the observation rubrics and coaching support you need to improve teacher practice and raise student achievement. And because TEF is integrated into the suite’s digital platform, it’s simpler to use than traditional frameworks, provides better tracking, and drives teacher effectiveness.

Calibration & Certification Engine (CCE) is an observer calibration solution that gets all your observers 
on the same page, significantly reducing inconsistencies that can occur with multiple observers and making observations more consistent and fair.
