Pennsylvania's number one choice
for evaluation management.
Welcome to the 2015-16 school year!
We hope everyone had a great summer break and are getting settled in for another great year of teaching. Over the past few months our team has been preparing for your return and we're excited to share the new and enhanced features of the PA-ETEP platform, which recently launched.
New! Observation Indicators
The Supervision Management screen now shows supervisors more information about which type of observation is open for a teacher or NTPE. We also include an action alert so you know what needs your attention. We are now working to include the ability to see the status of all teachers and NTPEs, even if you are not supervising them.
Better Support and Customer Service
We built in new features for our support team so they can provide faster help with common needs, such as authentication removal, comment deletion, and removing un-used observations. Another feature we'll be adding will be a streamlined way for our team to transfer an observation from one supervisor to another.
New! Evidence Editor for Observation Notes
Your feedback lead us to rethink the way observation notes are gathered and we came up with a new streamlined scripting tool for organizing observation notes by component as you go. You can still choose to use the Scripting Tool for time stamped note taking, or you can organize your notes as you go with our new tool!
Overhauled SLO Module
We rebuilt from the ground up to improve reliability, performance, and to make some areas less confusing. Among the bigger changes you'll encounter include support for multiple SLOs, less mandatory updates, and more notification options and alerts.
Coming soon! Teacher Specific Rating Calculator
Is on the way! New cutting-edge calculator with an extra feature to allow District Administrators to create preset values for supervisors to use in their calculations. Expect a full update in the next couple of days while we wrap up our development and testing!
We have many more efforts in the pipeline!

HEAR FROM OUR CUSTOMERS
"Our district has been extremely happy with PA-ETEP. It's very user friendly for all involved and the cost is very affordable for the product that they deliver. The parent company Edulink has gone above and beyond to create a true partnership with us. I would highly recommend this product to any school thinking about using their service."
