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.
