Dynamic Reports & Updates – Spring 2016
PA-ETEP now has several dynamic reports that administrators can use to gauge activity, review
identified areas of strength/growth, and collectively analyze rubric ratings. These reports are useful in gaining high-level insights and creating strategies to drive professional development. Building Principals, NTPE Supervisors and School District Admin users can access these reports by clicking on their Administration tab and then Reporting.

New printing capabilities based on popular request! Teachers and principals can now print Formal Observations and Differentiated Observations prior to authentication.
A link to professional development courses provided by PDE on the SAS portal is now available via the Observation Summary Form within Formal Observations and on the Resource page. Click here to learn more.
Also, several software optimization efforts were introduced with our recent updates and we have seen results of up to an 80% increase in speed and responsiveness in various areas of PA-ETEP. Some of the areas with the most noticeable performance gains include the Supervision Management page, the load and submission of observations, rubrics, and comments, plus an overall improvement across the system.
