How do Evaluate-Ed describe their product?

“This is the most dynamic self-evaluation and improvement tool that has ever been created in the education sector. Allowing you to drive your school improvement with a live online SEF and SIP developed by Educational leaders, the software asks you all the challenging questions about every aspect of running a school and tells you what outstanding or good looks like. The software highlights all the outstanding areas of the school and flags up any areas for development. It’s simple to use, very intuitive but extremely powerful in the analysis of your school, academy or trust,” said Howard Jackson, chief executive officer, Hub4Leaders.

What does HeadteacherChat think?

Evaluate-Ed is an intuitive tool for schools to use in order to track their school improvement goals across all areas of school life including premises, Governors and Finance.

Each section has a question for leaders to consider with pre-populated answers for leaders to choose from, saving them time and energy when it comes to school improvement. You can also upload your key documents as evidence.

Evaluate-Ed makes reporting easier, with all of your school improvement planning and documents in one place, online in a secure platform, yet easy to share with governors and stake holders.  It puts leaders in control of their school’s improvement journey.

The extensive data generated as a result of the evaluation questions provides evidence against your development plan and inspection preparation, and you can quickly see what is working well and what needs to be improved.

“Teachers and leaders have for too long been subject to an assortment of external evaluations and assessments, both local and national, that require responses. Many of these demands need reports or analysis which are very time consuming and often repetitive. Evaluate-Ed software provides schools with a bespoke central source from which to create their own evaluations, monitor progress effectively, produce and update reports speedily to meet their own school priorities, external expectations or both. Evaluate-Ed is the heart of self-assessment, monitoring, analysis and feedback processes which will impact positively on a school community,” said John Croghan MEd, BA, Cert Ed, school consultant, mentor and governor.

Benefits of using the product

  2. Provide your Trust, RSC, inspector, governing board, trustees and other stakeholders with an up-to-date and evidence-backed self-evaluation via a single link – perfect for remote access.
  3. Stop relying on 12-month improvement cycles – use shortened improvement cycles to meet school improvement objectives quickly and record your progress towards targets.
  4. Everything in one place. Upload your important documents so that you can show evidence of improvement and what you are working on.

In summary, Evaluate-Ed has the HeadteacherChat Stamp of Approval because:

‘I liked the fact that you can not only keep track of every area of your school or MAT, but you can also upload documents as evidence, generate reports for stakeholders and Governors - all without the stress of creating your own.

It was also reassuring to hear that the team behind the product were experienced school leaders and inspectors, helping to create a really useful evaluation tool.’
