Based on services requested.

Subscribers to this service can purchase user licenses for supported teacher/principal evaluation systems. Through the ongoing base fee, NERIC staff provide local software support to teachers and administrators utilizing the various online modules available through each others support packages.

In a subscriber’s first year in the service, NERIC staff also deliver formal training on the system to new users. Training includes an initial orientation to the software, guidance on software set-up, and guided instruction, coaching and practice of system features. Where appropriate, professional development may be presented in collaboration with Capital Region BOCES' Educational Support Services staff.

The software packages currently contain:

  • iObservation (604.230.010/020/030) is an instructional and leadership improvement system. It collects, manages and reports longitudinal data from classroom walk-through's teacher evaluations and teacher observations. Teach growth and leadership practices inform professional development, which is differentiated to individual learning needs for each teacher and leader to increase his or her effectiveness.
  • MLP/OASYS (604.230.110/120/140) is a Web-based observation and appraisal management system. In MLP/OASYS, communications and documentation easily flow in multiple directions, from practitioner to evaluator and the reverse, between multiple evaluators, even among peers. Through its scheduling feature, form settings, bi-directional approval routing and email notifications, MLP/OASYS provides an open-ended, yet structured, approach to collaboration that enables all participants to engage actively in the process. The MLP/OASYS service can be bundled with the MyLearningPlan/PDMS system offered through NERIC’s Professional Development Tracking System Support service.
  • Teachscape (604.230.210/220/230) modules combine software tools for classroom observation and evaluation and online learning content based on authentic teaching practice to support professional development and school turnaround. Teachscape enables instructional leaders to quickly collect classroom observation data and provides a framework for reflective discussions, data analysis, action planning and progress monitoring.
