Get better performance outcomes with software

The theory…

Over 40 years of research shows that setting goals and providing feedback is a very reliable, proven way of increasing performance and boosting staff engagement.  However, to be effective, leaders must set the right type of goal and provide regular feedback.   Without feedback, studies show that staff members become disengaged and lose interest and commitment to achieving the goal.

How we do it

Standards Tracker is a best-in-class software platform that helps overcome both these challenges. It incorporates best practice from leading schools, giving you a simple, transparent way to direct professional development and gain visibility over performance.

Everything
on one page

Staff can take ownership of their career development and have it all at their fingertips. Users can upload evidence, create notes, monitor their progress, and receive feedback from their Appraisers, all in one central hub of continuous personal development

Objectives setting

Effective appraisals are key to creating a fulfilling and engaging culture for employees. Set objectives and review those objectives with notes, evidence, and regular appraiser feedback throughout the year – making your end of year appraisal more meaningful.

Learning & Development

Staff can undertake CPD and training events and assess these against the national framework for effectiveness, creating a comprehensive record of learning and development in the system.
With our new Learn module, staff can benefit from ongoing personal development and take charge of their own strengths and weaknesses by enrolling on to courses created by you within your system.

Personal Portfolio

Lesson plans, feedback forms, workbook scrutinies, video observations, question banks and more can all be stored and uploaded into one personal portfolio – accessible at any time and unique to the user. Staff can sort, tag, and share documents for simpler, and more effective discussions and appraisals.

Team Progress

Staff feel more valued when they receive little and often feedback. Check in on staff and recognise those that go above and beyond or who are consistently providing best practice. Using Feedback Loop, it is easy to quickly identify areas of development or urgent attention with our transparent process so you can deploy staff support when and when you need it.

Schedule Monitored Meetings

Diarise pupil progress meetings, NQT monitoring meetings, trainee review meetings, performance reviews, observations, learning walks and book looks and enable alerts so that ongoing support and monitoring is more manageable and always a priority.

Forms

Teaching and learning monitoring and assessment using bespoke forms created by leaders to specifically review focussed elements as well as the overall quality of teaching and learning. As Standards Tracker works on any device, middle leaders can enter feedback straight onto the platform via tablet or laptop as they move from classroom to classroom.

Annual Reviews

Simplify appraisal and progression conversations by having everything ready at your fingertips. Easily conduct mid-year and end of cycle meetings to review objectives and evidence, provide feedback, assess progress, and agree on new objectives.

Everything In One Place

Standards Tracker brings together all the tools you need to ensure staff and organizational goals are always aligned and on track.

With modules for self-evaluation, school development, appraisals, and employee engagement, it’s easy to manage your organization and have real-time oversight across the board in just a few clicks.

Self-Evaluation

Uncomplicated analysis using built-in or custom evaluation frameworks.

Easily identify weaknesses using custom-built evaluation criteria and link with planning items to demonstrate strategic direction to parties both in and outside the school.

School Development Planning

Set your focus areas through your Self-Evaluation module, or at department or subject level, and know you’re working on the things that matter.

Use easy share settings to assign action plans to the relevant teams, and always keep up to date with customisable progress indicators to quickly identify development goals that are going off-track. Read and write permission sets mean you can share your progress effortlessly with relevant parties, including Governors.

Staff Performance Management

Instant oversight across all users at any time means you can establish areas for improvement before they become areas of concern.

Access records, review objective progress and moderate feedback. Use dashboard reports to identify gaps in your appraisal process and make sure staff are fully engaged with their development.

Discover Areas for Improvement

Use in-depth analytics to discover areas for improvement and instantly deploy staff support where you need it, when you need it.

Focus school and staff development where it matters using targeted reports, such as the top five and bottom five areas of practice within the school at any one time. Insightful data from Analytics can be used in the Self-Evaluation and Planning modules to create a focused and well-balanced school strategy.

CPD

Keep a record and monitor the impact of CPD. Ensure best use of resources, budget and training opportunities. Monitor the effectiveness of training and development provision to inform future provision across the school. Demonstrate support and development for all staff.

Triangulation
