Observation, Evaluation, and Growth

Plan, schedule, and conduct regular teacher evaluation across your entire district

"We were data rich, but information poor, and we needed to make our teacher evaluation work. After a year of using IO Talent, we are able to do a much better job of helping our teachers and students improve."

Dr. John Doherty   Reading Public Schools

"We’ve had some really positive success with IO Talent. The teachers have been able to get into their materials and look at the forms, be able to see where they’re at...collaborate more with their evaluators. Through having that kind of shared access and more universal access they’re able to actually have conversations with their evaluators more regularly and more comfortably."

John Marcus   Director of Technology and Libraries Sharon Public Schools

"We’ve built our IO Education world. We used it for student data, school data and teacher evaluations. Now we are moving into the measurement and observation phase this year. I really see it as a one stop management system for our school district"

Dr. James McCoy | Superintendent   Lee County School District
