that puts you in control of improving teacher effectiveness and driving change.
Have paper forms you love? We can build them in to the system for you for free. Want to create something completely new? Our easy form builder will walk you through the steps. Curious what other schools around the country are using? Check out our form gallery to view and use specialized forms from other observe4success schools. Or use a combination of our options to create your own perfect solution. The sky is the limit when it comes to how you set up your observe4success system (and we'll be here to help every step of the way)!
observe4success is web-based, so take your tablet, laptop, smart phone, or just about any web-enabled device and get in to the classroom. Use the forms you have built to record meaningful data about classroom performance.
Slow feedback is the worst! Eliminate the worry by sending your teacher an email before you leave the classroom. They can review the observation or evaluation and you both can be prepared for a follow-up chat.
What happens often? What doesn’t happen much? Are these strengths or areas in need of improvement? It’s up to you and your staff to decide through open, honest dialogue. Your data will be automatically graphed to show trends, making your conversations more productive. And best of all, you can see if the things you are doing to try to improve specific areas are working or if they need to be tweaked.
You shouldn’t have to spend your time figuring out how to use an overly complicated software system. observe4success is just as easy as using pen & paper, but much more powerful. And if you have questions, we are always here to help!
Customizable has become a trendy word, but it doesn’t always mean the same thing. When we say fully customizable, we mean it. Forms can be built from scratch with our super easy form builder. It walks you through the process, step-by-step, allowing you to create exactly what your school wants and needs. Don’t want to play with the form builder? We can build forms for you - for free.
You can access observe4success on any device from any location. Like to take your iPad in to the classroom but not comfortable typing long notes on it? No problem! Gather the basic data in the classroom with your iPad, then go back to your office and finish adding your notes on your desktop computer. Need to send some feedback from home, but forgot your device? No problem! Log in from your laptop at home and have full access to all of your data.
We hear our trend graphing is the best around! The graphs are robust but concise. They show you a clear picture of what is happening over time – for a single teacher, a grade level, a department, school-wide, or across your district/network. Even custom form data is automatically graphed. You’ll be amazed by what visual aids can do for generating meaningful conversation during follow-ups.
We love our customers and it shows. From the initial demo, to setting up your custom system, to training and support - YOU are our number one priority. We are easy to reach and always happy to help. No question is too small or too silly.

We are a "focus" school and this is giving the exact feedback to the teachers that the state expects. I enjoy spending more time in the classrooms and having deeper, on-going conversations with teachers about instruction. "

In addition to the software itself, I am hugely appreciative of the personalized support that the observe4success team has been able to offer us. I must have changed my mind a dozen times, but they were always happy to accommodate our needs."

We have been able to customize the software to include all of our school improvement action steps. observe4success allows us to give timely feedback to teachers about instructional practices and strategies."
"Research shows that a "one size fits all" approach is not conducive to quality instruction. What we realized at Greenbrier School District is this is a reality when it comes to classroom observations as well. We are able to very easily build our own customized observation tool to fit our needs and our curricular and instructional focal areas. I love the fact that the platform is simple, easy to navigate, and saves me a lot of time."
