Curriculum Observer

Curriculum Observer is an e-administration system that allows you to design and deliver your teaching observations on-line eliminating many paper based procedures. The system is installed on your network and integrates with your Management Information System ensuring that you have up to date robust management, tracking and reporting features with no cumbersome imports.

System Features

Curriculum Observer incorporates a document designer allowing you to create online observation forms that record exactly the information you require from your observers, teachers and moderators. Observer, teachers and moderators can all access the observation document at the relevant time but are restricted to specific sections that apply to their feedback. Strengths and Areas for Improvement recorded during an observation are available to teachers and line managers to create additional actions that can be followed up at the next observation.

Scheduler

Observations are scheduled to link observers with teachers and optionally to the cohort group via our MIS integration.

Selecting a course/cohort group from your MIS database allows Curriculum Observer to retrieve curriculum and qualification information to automatically populate specific form elements.

Built-in Reporting

Once observations have been scheduled, observers, teachers and moderators will log-on and complete their required document sections all of which can be tracked centrally to ensure the process is proceeding as planned.

A suite of built-in reports are available to managers and administrators to review documents, examine key metrics and to track all aspects of the observation process.

Built-in Dashboard

Managers and Administrators have access to a central dashboard for quick access to key observation statistics and data. Administrators have no restrictions but Managers are limited to data associated with their staff. Filters are available to filter data by year, curriculum level and staff status (built-in and user defined flags).

Custom Reporting

Observer incorporates a comprehensive design tool that is used to build both observation documents and custom reports & dashboards.
