Flexible technology for teacher and staff evaluation

Complicated processes, demanding reporting requirements and a reliance on paper forms can make performance evaluations more of a hassle than a professional development tool. But streamlining evaluation processes can eliminate the hassle and create opportunities for increased collaboration, educator growth and student gains.

Perform is a comprehensive performance evaluation system designed to handle all K-12 employee evaluations — from teachers to principals to support staff and beyond — while adapting to fit individual school, district or board processes and align with state, local or provincial requirements, even when your needs or requirements change.

Simplify, automate and ensure a consistent observation, supervision and evaluation process that includes inter-rater calibration tools, access to professional development resources and artifacts collection capabilities. Perform gives you the power to make changes, use or add forms and generate reports at will. Yes. It’s that simple. And that versatile

Why should K-12 performance management process evolve?


Configurable Forms and Frameworks
Complete all of your performance evaluations — certified, classified, administrative, coaches and even substitutes — in the same system with customizable framework options and tools to complete observation, summative evaluation forms and rubrics online.

Research-based Frameworks
TalentEd partners with these nationally recognized, research-based frameworks: McREL, Stronge & Associate and CEL 5D+™.

Principal Dashboard
Ditch the spreadsheets to track tasks and activity. The Principal Dashboard keeps principals, building administrators, and other evaluators on task, up-to-date, and in control on their evaluations.

Monitor Inter-Rater Reliability
Ensure evaluator consistency with real-time data as components are submitted, or pre-configure reports to make it easy to review how evaluations are completed and if calibration is needed.

HR Dashboard
See the evaluation status of any employee in real time, or view evaluation progress by building or across the entire district or institution. That means no more phone calls or nagging emails to check evaluation progress.

Evaluation Tasks
Need to know the status of an evaluation? Get answers instantly by viewing which tasks are planned, scheduled, incomplete and complete for each employee.

Tablet & Mobile Access
Complete your observations or walkthroughs on the go with your tablet or mobile phone — Perform works on Apple, Android and Windows devices.

Evaluation Processes Tool
Feel confident that your evaluations are being completed as planned with automatic organization of all evaluation processes, including all the forms, meetings, and other tasks on the to-do list. The evaluation process builder supports compliance by ensuring all scheduled tasks are completed by supervisors and the employees being evaluated.

TalentEd Perform Staff List
Supervisors and HR professionals can easily access all designated employees’ evaluation folders on the staff list screen. Users with appropriate permissions can search for a specific employee, see who has evaluations, review improvement plans and access employee folders in real time.

Observation Scripting Tool
Easy digital notetaking allows observers to focus on documenting what they see in the classroom, rather than the specific questions on the observation form. Notes are easily “glued” where appropriate after the observation with automatic time stamping for simple recall.

HR Analytics & Reporting
Reporting and analytics modules make it easy to answer evaluation questions or create reports for the school board or state. Summative evaluation reports can also help design personalized professional development plans.

Supervisory Weekly Email
Automated emails keep users informed of scheduled meetings or forms to be completed. Receive overdue reminders, notifications of upcoming meetings and observations, and alerts of any forms your staff still needs to complete — such as a lesson preview or self-evaluation form.

State/Province Requirements
Perform can support specific state/province requirements, like Ontario’s Teacher Performance Appraisal Forms and Processes for evaluations and annual learning plans, as well as Texas’ appraisal process and T-TESS and T-PESS forms.

5D+™ Teacher Evaluation has been developed at the Center for Educational Leadership, University of Washington (CEL) and licensed to PeopleAdmin, Inc. under agreement with the University of Washington.
