The framework structure in Strive enables professional standards to be associated with professional goals, evaluation document questions, and professional development courses.
Strive management allows multiple frameworks to be created and associated with the different appraisee types within a district. By tagging goals, questions and courses with different professional standards, an appraiser will be able to analyze data down to the sub-standard component and provide the proper coaching and support for individual employee growth.

In Appraise Management
- Remember to tie each appraisee type to the appropriate framework for tracking purposes.
- You can tie evaluation documents to frameworks and professional standards too.
- Note: If your district used the same evaluation document in Appraise to evaluate various employees tied to different frameworks (i.e. Teacher & Librarian), in Strive, your district will need to replicate that evaluation document in order to tie different questions to different framework components if two or more frameworks are involved.
In Workshop Management
- Do not forget to assign dimensions to courses to enhance reporting.
- The same course can be tied to multiple frameworks.
- For example, a course titled Integrating Technology into the Classroom, can be tied to an ISTE framework for technology coaches and a second professional standards framework for classroom teachers.
