McREL Rubric

Standard For Success’ Evaluation software supports McREL rubrics. McREL is a nonprofit, nonpartisan education research, development, and service organization that helps schools, districts, and education agencies improve outcomes for all students.

Teacher Evaluation: Standards-Based

Research-based and aligned with the InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards, this rubric-based process measures teacher performance on specific actions linked to student achievement and identifies areas of needed professional development. The easy-to-use software (available through PeopleAdmin) allows you to aggregate data, customize reports, generate action plans, and track teacher performance over time.

Teacher Evaluation: CUES Framework

Based on the proven instructional strategies in Classroom Instruction That Works (2nd ed.), the CUES Framework focuses on evaluating teacher growth, reinforcing teachers’ depth of knowledge (Content) and their abilities to deliver high-quality instruction (Understanding), create conditions that support learning for all students (Environment), and use resources to inspire rigorous learning (Support).

Principal Evaluation

Are your principals leading instruction effectively? Conveying clear goals? Establishing order and discipline while serving as agents for change? Chart a course for principal improvement that is consistent, objective, and easy to report on and track. Our training for district personnel ensures everyone understands and is ready to use the new system on day one.

Superintendent and Central Office Evaluation

District leadership makes a difference and effective administrators and superintendents focus on creating goal-oriented districts. Our evaluation systems for central office leaders and superintendents measures performance on the most important practices and gives specific recommendations for improvement. Evaluation data can be combined with student performance data to give a complete picture of the effect system leaders are having on student success.

“As a principal, the Customer Service and Support at Standard For Success has been outstanding to work with.

They email clear solutions and clarifications to help answer my questions within an hour or less. In addition, the team is quickly willing to make adaptations or offer suggestions to meet specific needs. The excellent work and care provided by the Customer Service and Support Team at Standard for Success has allowed me to provide immediate and effective feedback to my staff.”
Jean Clark, Principal on Special Assignment, St. Cloud Area School District

“The District chose Standard for Success for several reasons. One was the ease of use, but what really impressed us was the customer service that we have experienced since Day 1 when we reached out to Standard for Success for information. Our typical time to bring in a new vendor is three months. However, because Standard for Success was so responsive to every question or request we were able to complete the contract and hold training with all of our supervisors in less than six weeks. Everyone, including the CEO, responded to emails and calls within 30 minutes or less. I know that a company with that type of high customer service takes pride in their product and will work to ensure that we have a product that meets our needs.”
Mary Ann, Salt River Schools, AZ


“Of all the tools we evaluated, Standard For Success stood out because it was developed by educators and can make the process of teacher evaluation and collection of data manageable. They have been willing to listen to input and implemented ideas from the field. Their product supports our mission of supporting the leaders in our schools.”

Dr. Bess, Indiana Association of School Principals
