Performance Matters

TLS and Performance Matters (formerly TrueNorthLogic) co-created an electronic solution for districts that allows for in depth observer training, actual classroom observations, and professional development to ensure continued calibration of observers. Continued calibration leads to greater inter-rater reliability and agreement among observers, and in turn helps districts know where to focus professional development for observers and teachers.


Partnering with MassiveU, an online course platform developed to ensure high levels of participant engagement, TLS is developing an ever-expanding course library. All courses meet ESEA requirements for embedded professional learning, and allow districts the ability to monitor participant learning, achievement, and completion.

Educators upload/record video submissions to GoReact for coaches and/or peers to provide automatically time-coded text, video or audio feedback. Coaches can also include feedback/scoring via custom rubrics and use comprehensive reports to track engagement and improvement over time.
