teacher helping students in class

Our evaluator calibration tool, Observation Engine, is in use in over 700 school districts. This streaming video application provides a practice environment for training and calibrating the micro-credentialing classroom observers. Videos were collected in the MET project, and initial development was supported by Gates Foundation. Data analytics help states and districts improve their educator evaluation systems.

What people say

The BloomBoard-Empirical partnership is an innovative new approach that will help change the way our state personalizes the training, professional development, and calibration of our educators. Dr. Lynne Johnson, NCDPI
