TEAMS: The Evaluations and Assets Management System
TEAMS is the industry’s most comprehensive Teacher, Principal and Staﬀ evaluation (TPSE) platform. School divisions utilize TEAMS to manage the entire TPSE business process and to oﬀer integrated Professional Development (PD) for Teachers and School Leaders to improve their effectiveness and accountability.
TEAMS includes a Professional Development (PD) recommendation engine that identifies appropriate PD content based on evaluation outcomes. PD content can be assigned by supervisors (evaluators), and teachers and principals can preview the content and commit to completing them. PD content usage is tracked and its users can provide reﬂections and star ratings. Supervisors have the ability to revisit/re-observe the evaluee to analyze the impact of the PD in their classroom. School districts can offer PD content from their own content libraries or from the TEAMS PD content repository, which links to high quality, standards aligned content from TEAM’S partners. School districts can also include links to other sites for mandated, licensure requirements.
This full life-cycle management of PD content identification, assignment, review, feedback and the ability to readily measure the impact offers the best quality continuous improvement opportunity for teachers and principals. And our testimonials show that the users love it!

TEAMS (The Evaluations and Assets Management System) is comprised of a team of educators, software developers, and school administrators who work around the clock to improve the administrative and instructional processes of schools. With a heavy rapport of clientele in the education software market, TEAMS brings forth the knowledge, skill, and toolset needed to provide schools with the utmost care and support that they deserve.
We truly believe that by offering opportunities for Teachers and their Evaluators to Collaborate and Interact with each other during the evaluation process and by making the whole process “transparent” and “easy to understand”, the Teachers would buy-in to the process more readily. In addition, by providing PD opportunities to teachers in observed evaluation criteria, their confidence will improve and they will deliver their instruction in more effective ways to enable “every child” in their classroom learn the content effectively.
