Classroom observation that provides data on teacher effectiveness and impact on student learning

Overview

Whetstone Education is an online observation and coaching tool for administrators and teachers. It allows coaches, administrators, and support staff to observe and support teachers by sharing feedback and performance data in real time. Whetstone Education is available for an annual fee.

APPROACH

Administrators and other instructional leaders begin using Whetstone by creating a school account and entering in all relative teacher information. Using the note taking tool, instructional leaders and coaches take notes on their observations directly in the app. The notes can then be shared with administrators and the observed teachers for assessment and feedback, respectively.

Instructional leaders and coaches can also create and track growth goals, view Whetstone- generated data reports, and share feedback and recourses with each other and teachers.

WHO’S USING IT

As of 2015, Whetstone Education is being used by over 5,300 teachers in 215 schools.

PRICING

Whetstone Instructional Coaching & Evaluation Platform costs $4,000 per school, annually.
