How It Works
More and more, evaluation systems need to incorporate different types of data and follow different processes, approvals, and measures for different teacher roles. Districts can easily customize Teachscape Reflect to fit their own needs for evaluation.
Determine Observation Needs
Whether for formal evaluations or informal progress monitoring, Teachscape Reflect supports multiple ways to observe teaching:
Identify the Components of the Evaluation System
Because teaching is complex, evaluation of teaching practice is most effective when it incorporates multiple measures examined from multiple perspectives.
Observers can identify the measures and weightings to be included in an evaluation based on the district's evaluation formula, and input them into Teachscape Reflect to generate the final summative score at the end of the evaluation cycle.
Build In Custom Processes and Forms
Districts can easily set up the system to include their own forms and follow their own processes for evaluation.
Teachscape Reflect has the flexibility to allow the district to include custom rubrics and forms, including multiple versions of an evaluation rubric for various roles and pre- and post-observation forms.
Use Data to Inform Feedback and Action Plans
District administrators can synthesize the data with reports in Teachscape Reflect to identify trends in teaching performance and track system usage through dashboards and reports to ensure evaluations are on track.
Principals can use Teachscape Reflect’s reporting tools to make use of data from evaluations to frame professional conversations and provide valuable feedback to teachers. It is this part of the evaluation process that sparks ongoing dialogue and empowers educators to reflect on their teaching, build on their strengths, and develop their areas for growth.
