Turn observations into transformative learning experiences
The Teacher Effectiveness Framework (TEF) is a comprehensive evaluation framework that includes a set of quality indicators aligned to the InTASC Model Core Teaching Standards—the de facto teacher development standard at many of the best teaching colleges and universities around the US.
TEF gives you the observation rubrics and coaching support you need to improve teacher practice and raise student achievement. And because TEF is integrated into the suite’s digital platform, it’s simpler to use than traditional frameworks, provides better tracking, and drives teacher effectiveness.
The InTASC LumiBook comes with dozens of resources that will help you and your teachers utilize the InTASC standards and progressions in the classroom, including:
“Observe easily supports classroom improvement and is a trigger for better communication between administrators and teachers… The ability to have instant communication between teacher and administrator enhances and streamlines the evaluation process significantly.”
