Formal Observations


PA-ETEP’s Formal Observation ensures teachers and supervisors are adhering to Pennsylvania’s Act 82 Educator Effectiveness regulations.  PA-ETEP’s dynamic Formal Observation includes a scripting tool for ease of collecting evidence.  Rubrics based on role (i.e. Teacher, Counselor, etc.) are populated in the Formal observation, providing principals with rubric language specific to the individual’s role. The Formal Observation contains the following features:


  • Pre-Observation Questionnaire
  • Pre-Observation and Post-Observation Conference scheduling
  • Observation Scripting Tool for time-stamped, real-time observation note-taking
  • Observation Evidence Editor for observation notes organized by component area
  • Post-Observation Questionnaire
  • Full two-way Self-Assessment Rubric compatible with the Framework for Teaching
  • Observation Summary with Growth and Strength tracking

Unannounced Observations

PA-ETEP supports multiple observation options and gives users the ability to skip various steps along the way, like the pre-observation questionnaire and conference, for a dynamic observation management experience.
