Professional Growth Plans
iObservation guides teachers through designing a plan that is realistic, focused, and measurable using SMART goals (Specific & Strategic, Measurable, Attainable, Results-Based, and Time-Bound). The system connects data from multiple sources, from self-assessment and classroom observation results to information from student learning and achievement projects. Teachers use this data to inform their planning and analysis.
As teachers identify explicit goals, iObservation recommends short, on-demand professional development resource items mapped directly to address the focus of the plan. This powerful ability allows schools and districts to connect their content frameworks to a teacher’s professional development in a way that is targeted, relevant, and aligned to the common language of instruction.
