Randa Solutions To Launch Teacher Observation System for Android and iPad

Randa Solutions is gearing up to release a new teacher observation system for Android and iPad, TOWER Mobile. The release, according to the company, follows extensive pilot tests at a number of K-12 schools.

TOWER (for "Teacher Observation, Walkthrough, Evaluation, and Reporting") is a mobile observation system built around a centralized database accessed through an online portal.

The paperless system allows districts to supply their own rubrics and walkthrough criteria, and includes five reports that can be automatically distributed. A synchronization feature allows administrators to observe without a WiFi connection and upload the results later. Multiple rubrics and custom reports are also available.

The price of the TOWER System, available July 25, starts at $60 for each teacher to be evaluated, though the price increases with customization.
