We continue to focus on ways TOWER can bring additional value K-12 educators.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 16, 2012
Today RANDA Solutions announced the addition of new teacher evaluation resources for superintendents and administrators in their TOWER solution. Additionally, RANDA announced a new TOWER-specific website, which can be found at http://tower.randasolutions.com/.
“We continue to focus on ways TOWER can bring additional value to K-12 educators,” says Randall Dennis, RANDA’s Chief Strategy Officer. “TOWER’s new pre and post-observation encounter forms provide objective goals and progress reports. They inform administrators’ conversations with teachers so they are more meaningful. They’re great talent management tools that make timely, practical use of the data from TOWER observations.”
TOWER licenses provide subscribers the TOWER System and TOWER Mobile for both iPads and Android. Further, the flexible system allows school districts to prescribe an observation rubric and a walkthrough form, as well as four customer-selected reports. With this announcement, school districts can select three additional forms from the TOWER resource library for educators to set goals and measure growth. Data populating the forms is freshly supplied by observations and walkthroughs performed on TOWER Mobile. Beyond typical TOWER functionality and resources, RANDA offers extensive customization options for the TOWER solution.
Additionally, Dennis pointed to a new TOWER-specific website for K-12 superintendents and administrators interested in exploring TOWER for their school district. “The new site will help educators find out about new features and benefits that will be announced shortly,” says Dennis. “Exciting stuff, so stay tuned.” Districts can inquire about TOWER details directly on the new website.
