I would describe customer service from IO Education as superior and I don't say that lightly, because it's hard in education to describe anything that way but I would describe it as superior because we have made multiple requests to tweak the way a screen looks, the way a specific component interacts with the user and always have had a one hundred percent responsiveness and in very short order. So we've been able to make the IO Talent system even more customized to meeting our needs because every time we've asked it's been customized to our users.
We were data rich, but information poor, and 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
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, upload their evidence for those kinds of things from the state and really collaborate more with their evaluators, they're able to through having that sort of shared access and more universal access they're able to actually have conversations with their evaluators more regularly and more comfortably.
Quincy public school has been very happy with IO Education, we found that it eases the reporting and that IO Talent, the evaluation tool, has been very helpful for our district.
IO Talent has not only provided a solution for educator evaluation from an organizational standpoint but it has been a catalyst for us as a collaboration tool. As an example, the evidence board has provided opportunities for teachers to share what they've been doing in their classrooms by posting to their evidence board, which has been a springboard for other conversations with the evaluators and has impacted classroom instruction by the sharing from teacher to teacher.
