The most powerful formative classroom observation system just keeps get better.  We are proud to announce the updates and improvements to the PowerWalks Formative Observation System for the 2017/2018 school year.

The classroom observation form has been streamlined and updated to reflect the improved understanding of instructional best practices.

There are FIVE new standard reports! My favorites are the Shaping Practices Report, The Fundamental 5 Growth Potential Report, and The Fundamental 5 Quality Report.

For our Texas and Kentucky schools there are the T-TESS Formative Snapshot and a PGES Formative Snapshot.

There is a matrix builder to assist in the scheduling which classrooms are to be visited by which observer on a particular day.

These are just the major upgrades.  There are ton of smaller upgrades to enhance the user’s experience.

For a demonstration of the system, you can either email Dr. Jim Davis at or call Jo Hoeppner at (832) 477-5323.

Think. Work. Achieve.
