PeopleAdmin Expands Talent Management Software Portfolio with TeacherMatch Acquisition

PeopleAdmin and TeacherMatch, two providers of talent management software for education, have combined to offer a comprehensive talent management platform and analytical solution intended for identifying, hiring and developing effective teachers. The combined company will operate under the PeopleAdmin name.

TeacherMatch is the third K-12 education software company PeopleAdmin has acquired in the past year and a half. In February 2015, the company acquired Netchemia, a developer of talent management software for the K-12 education market, and in August 2015, it acquired SearchSoft Solutions, a provider of cloud-based applicant tracking, performance management and teacher evaluation software. PeopleAdmin's K-12 education products include TalentEd, SchoolSpring, SearchSoft, and now TeacherMatch's product portfolio.

TeacherMatch products include:

  • Educators Professional Inventory (EPI), a data-driven and analytically predictive teacher assessment tool;
  • Professional Development Profile (PDP), a personalized professional development planning tool;
  • Thrive, a professional development management system for teachers and administrators;
  • Instructional Proficiency Inventory (IPI), a professional development diagnostic tool that uses predictive analytics; and
  • SmartFind, a workforce planning and absence management system that integrates with TalentEd and SearchSoft applicant tracking systems.

According to a news release from PeopleAdmin, TeacherMatch Educators Professional Inventory "is designed to predict which teacher candidates are most likely to deliver academic growth for their students," and its development was based on a nationwide study conducted by TeacherMatch and the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA).
