At Building 21 schools, adults are encouraged to observe each others classrooms. The walk-through form was designed to allow teachers and administrators to observe specific indicators in a quick 10-15 minute visit. Comments and suggestions would immediately be emailed to the teacher and that data would populate the walk-through dashboard. This dashboard exists in the School Compass as an admin dashboard. Administrators can see how many walk-throughs are being done, who has been observed, who has observed, and a summary of the indicators as shown by the radar graphs. These are then used to identify growth opportunities for the staff.
Data for the dashboard comes from Google forms. You can see a few examples of these forms below.
