What is Standards Tracker?

Standards Tracker transforms appraisals from a once-a-year tick box exercise into a simple and effective ongoing staff development process.

Staff are appraised against the relevant standards. They can comment and upload evidence to demonstrate performance. Feedback is recorded on forms and tagged against the appropriate standards for easy future retrieval. Objectives are set and both teachers and appraisers can comment on progress throughout the year. The CPD training log records training but also allows staff to rate it using the CPD standards allowing for feedback on its effectiveness.

School leaders get management tools to schedule feedback events; create charts on performance trends; print-off appraisal summaries and track engagement - all at the click of a button. No need for mounds of paperwork; saves hours of valuable time and creates trust in the appraisal process.

Our software is browser-based and can be used on desktops or tablets. We set up the software with you so that it fits your requirements as exactly as possible. Training is provided within the app and separate training systems are provided but our experience is that teachers need little to no training to be able to use the system.

Set Up

We work with you to plan your system and set it up to match your requirements, e.g. recreating lesson observation forms, determining check-in dates, agree your strategic goals and outcomes, etc. This is done in an session which usually lasts around an hour. We then aim to have you up and running within one working day.

TrainingLive OnlineWebinarsDocumentationVideos

Our software has support built in, so that users are provided with support on the page they are on. We also have a user guide, walkthroughs and videos. Our separate learning system allows staff to use a dummy system to practice to ensure they feel comfortable with the platform. Finally, we are always happy to provide human training and support via screen sharing and video chat.

This is the most useful and effective tool we have used to support both appraisal and the evaluation of the impact of CPD. Progress over time can easily be tracked and the integration of school development planning and self evaluation means that this is your one stop shop for school improvement. Clear, anonymised headlines can be provided and personalised for a range of audiences and the team are incredibly responsive to providing updates in response to requests from schools.

Helen Thompson found Standards Tracker:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    “All documentation is in one place and staff can easily cross reference their work against the teacher standards. It is easier for staff to collate any evidence for their appraisal to give them an easy t manage portfolio. Leaders workload is significantly reduced, as there are a range of tools to support with whole school analysis.”
  • Moderately provides school data
    “The analysis tools provide a wealth of information to support leaders in their understanding of the quality of teaching and learning across the school. The flexibility of the system and the ways in which it can be personalised to meet the individual school needs means that data can be tailored effectively. There are a range of tools to provide whole school, departmental or individual data overviews which ensures that information can be accessed at the touch of a button.”
  • Significantly improves school processes
    “The structure of the system provides rigour to the appraisal process and also ensures that school self evaluation and school improvement planning are integrated effectively to provide a holistic view of the school and their performance.”

It helps focus all staff on the monitoring schedule. Staff know when they are to be monitored and the schedule is set for the full year with aspects and different focus linked to our school priority areas. School create their own monitoring forms and appraisals linked to these priorities so they are adapted well to our context.

Vicki found Standards Tracker:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
    “Through the monitoring system we can identify areas for development and then support staff in improving these specific areas.”
  • Significantly provides school data

At the moment there is not enough of a link between evidence gathered against a strand and that evidence appearing directly under the assessment of that strand. It's all too broad brushstrokes which makes it all far too unwieldy
