PerformancePAM Talent Management now supports professional development in schools by tailoring it to assist administrators as they facilitate professional growth among faculty members. PerformancePAM has always made it easy for businesses to recognized talent strengths and weaknesses among employees. Now it does the same for schools. Using PerformancePAM, administrators are able to identify growth needs of individual teachers as well as which teachers use best practices, allowing internal resources to be maximized across the organization.
Many schools are challenged by the need to improve teaching methods with traditional clinical supervision model of teacher evaluation. By facilitating a collaborative professional development model, administrators are able to transform teachers into active participants in their own professional development process. PerformancePAM is a tool that helps this process become meaningful to teachers as they refine the skills that make schools effective.
Once teachers assess themselves, the administrator completes the same process. Neither party can see each other’s responses. When both are complete, a report is generated which demonstrates any differences of opinion. The administrator and teacher discuss inconsistencies and an agreement is reached. Finally, PerformancePAM generates a report on individual teachers and the entire faculty to help create a professional development plan for the school year. This allows the school to target individual and group needs and make good use of limited professional development resources.
PerformancePAM integrates with any human resources or payroll software eliminating the need for rekeying of employee data, or it may stand alone. The turnkey implementation methodology makes PerformancePAM easy to deploy and sets organizations up to maintain their employee performance appraisal system with little effort. With customizable templates, progress tracking capabilities, notifications, goal management, and scoring, PerformancePAM allows organizations to get started quickly and have a complete employee appraisal solution that will essentially administer itself.
It is a prime initiative of PerformancePAM to support education in the immediate community and beyond. To support this initiative, PerformancePAM is allowing all educational institutions to procure this professional development tool at a discount. The hope is that this tool will be used to enhanced teacher development, resulting in an enhanced learning experience for students.
