Your students now take classes 100% online. Our k12 schools have shuttered their doors to promote social distance.

What should a teacher candidate do? They came into the semester so excited to do field work or student teach. How can we recreate this learning?

Patrick and I want to help. We will waive the $2,000 annual site fee and reduce our per site license fee down to $10 an account.

ReVIEW Talent Feedback System is a teacher observation and instructional capacity coaching program. It is currently used by New Haven Public Schools, Hartford Public Schools, Killingly Public Schools, and CREC. 

Conflict of Interest Statement: The development of the software is partially funded through a start up grant from the University of Connecticut and Southern Connecticut State University. Dr. J. Gregory McVerry has a revenue sharing agreement with SCSU Foundation and will give portions of profits back to the university

ReVIEW Talent Feedback System Video Library 

All videos are normed against the 2017 CT SEED model and have transcriptions for accessibility purposes. Our framework in Connecticut shares many traits with other rubrics of effective teaching.

The video based calibrations can be used in Ed Leadership replacement observations. They can do a Video Based Calibration as a summative assessment or we have access to high quality partners that have developed curriculum that walks students through 31 strategies for feedback and observation. 

Ed Leadership Replacement Assignments 

Any educator preparation program can use our video library and video based calibration. We will happily donate the VBC platform to any University using the system.

If any program wanted our coaches to score the videos pre and post we have highly talented coached that deserve to be paid so that can not be donated.

We also have access, through our partner network, to high quality curriculum on best practices for coaching through observation and feedback.

If faculty would like to have a class set up in ReVIEW Talent Feedback System as a demo they should email

Teacher Candidate Replacement Assignments 

Any of the videos inside our library can be used to replace scheduled field work. Teacher candidates who can not student teach or students who needed to conduct observations earlier in their program can have pedagogically sound opportunities using our video library,

The videos can be set up for purposeful observations. So, for example, we can watch Ami McMoran teach a small group lesson on vowel sounds and see how she reviews objectives and expectations and sets criteria for students. 

Students could watch for other active discussion techniques in secondary science.

We can use this opportunity to rethink our field work and make sure we use shorter more frequent but targeted observations. We can brainstorm some cool assignments. Long term ReVIEW would be a great place to pilot the validity of a rubric or text the validity of a set of raters.
