  • • What do you do? (Try to relate it to the end user)
  • After the viewer has watched the entire video, deciding which clips correspond to which competencies for observation, the scoring process occurs. In Scoring, the reviewer re-views the coded sections of video and scores them against the selected elements of the framework.
  • Reflect enables results from self-reflection/evaluation to be compared side-by-side with the external evaluation results. Summary observation results can also be exported to PDF.

    Get feedback based on observational data from their coach or principal;
    Enroll in graduate courses or Masters degrees to deepen their understanding of effective teaching.
  • Measure, Model & Support
    Panoramic Rig
    • Reflect allows detailed, individualized analysis of teaching
    • Teachers can build digital portfolios of their lessons, using panoramic classroom video, samples of student work and lesson plans
    • Classroom Walkthrough technology allows grouping for learning
    • In-person coaching for instructional leaders
    • On-line resources that model research-based practices
    • Web-based courses and degree programs
    • In-person coaching helps teachers change their practices
    • 24/7 technical support helps users find what they need
    • Robust reports enable leaders to measure outcomes
  • Market Opportunities
    Unprecedented Federal infusion of funds into teacher effectiveness market
    $4.5 billion in competitive Race to the Top funding
    $3.5 billion in Title I Funds for school improvement
    $650 million in Innovation Grants
    Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – $335 million to promote effective teachingand raise student achievement
    $15 million contract with Teachscape to capture lessons in videoand build a proprietary system to measure effective teaching
    Unprecedented access to key states & districts
    First mover advantage
    Gates funding states to implement performance-based teacher evaluation systems
    Key market dynamics
    Federal funding drives discretionary purchasing (Title 1 & Title II)
    Policy focus on “effectiveness” shifting incentives away from “seat-time” and credit hours” for PD
  • Why the Interest in Teacher Effectiveness?
    From 1980-2005, per pupil spending increased 73% and the student-teacher ratio fell 18%, but student achievement remained flat.
    Research has proven that neither class size nor per pupil funding matter as much as teacher effectiveness in driving achievement.
