We are pleased our pilots have yielded such encouraging responses and useful feedback for updates

RANDA Solutions is pleased to announce the upcoming market release of their Teacher Observation app for paperless classroom observation via their patent-pending mobile device system. This announcement comes amid RANDA’s cross-platform app and system field-test pilots in seven K12 school and higher ed systems utilizing eight rubrics. Under the current pilot programs, RANDA’s iPad app has been named simply “RANDA Teacher Observation Pilot”.

The iPad app powers field observations for the RANDA Observation Solution. It reduces tedious teacher observation paperwork using a simple, intuitive interface which is customizable for any rubric. Key current RANDA Teacher Observation Pilot app features include:

  • Synchronization/Offline Use: No Internet access required during field observations
  • Workflow: Download only teacher assignments needed for current observation workload
  • Scheduling: Assign a year or a week of observations - flexible to administrator preferences
  • Rubrics: Numerous rubrics including classroom walk-throughs
  • Reporting: Aggregate observation results with other data to create meaningful updated reports

"We are pleased our pilots have yielded such encouraging responses and useful feedback for updates," says Marty Reed, CEO of RANDA Solutions. “Beyond the simplicity and expediency of the app, administrators tell us that replacing paper with iPads allows them to more easily observe student teacher interactions."

As the app becomes market-available in the Summer of 2011, RANDA will extend the system’s availability beyond Tennessee, where the pilot programs have been conducted.
