Standard For Success and Education Data Solutions join forces to simplify and improve teacher evaluation and outcomes
Chicago, IL — Standard for Success (SFS), a fast-growing provider of teacher evaluation software, and Education Data Solutions (EDS), a leading provider of student growth analytics, are pleased to announce a strategic partnership to improve teacher performance and outcomes.
In addition to ongoing teacher performance evaluations, more than 35 states require statistical models of student growth to be included in those evaluations. In some states, the method of measuring achievement is mandated by the state. In others, the method is left to the individual district. SFS and EDS’ web-based platforms are flexible enough to support any measurement model while allowing high levels of customization, affordability, and ease of use.
“SFS is the perfect complement to our Teacher Impact Reports platform” said Henry Schwenk, president of EDS. “Our focus is on aggregating student data from a district’s many sources, and enabling teachers and administrators to analyze student data from the district level all the way down to the individual student. Some of our standard reports are specifically designed to be used for teacher evaluation, and are a perfect fit with SFS.”
“We feel privileged to engage in this partnership,” said Todd Whitlock, CEO of SFS. “We’ve helped more than 930 schools transform their teacher evaluation programs from fruitless compliance exercises to true enablers of employee engagement and performance. We’re excited to come alongside EDS to help schools upgrade the education they provide without undue burden on their staff and resources.”
Old, tired methods of employee performance management are broken. Together, SFS and EDS can bring data-driven, evidence-based tools to deliver measurable improvements for teachers and students.
