Using the App - (for those that already have the app)
Open the appraise icon on your screen. A settings screen will appear. Enter your eduphoria! district website (i.e. https://district.schoolobjects.com). Enter your username and password in the Login Information area. Your username and password will be saved in the settings. For confidentiality reasons, we highly recommend that you set a passcode lock for your iPad (in your Settings icon on the iPad).
To begin seeing your staff members, tap on the image of the person in the top left corner. Select your school, and then select the staff member.
Once you have selected the staff member, tap on the plus sign to begin a new Walkthrough or Observation. If you selected a walkthrough, then you will be prompted to pick which template you wish to use. With both types of evaluations, you will be prompted to enter Class or Assignment information. If you would like to send the evaluation to the teacher immediately after you "Save and Close," then tap the "Allow Teacher to View" button. Tap it again to toggle it off. Once sent to the teacher, the document will not be viewable from the iPad. You, of course, will be able to view it from your regular login.
Tap "Begin" and complete the evaluation. Tap to add checkmarks to items. Tap to toggle between the options a matrix item. Tap on any comments section to open your keyboard.
When finished, tap "Done" to return to the home screen. Make sure to tap "Save and Close" before leaving the evaluation.
In addition to the ability to complete walkthroughs and formal observations, appraisers will now be able to view Lesson Plans*, Assessment Data*, and the teacher's Professional Development Portfolio*.
*Note: To view these features, districts must have purchased or subscribed to SchoolObjects:forethought, SchoolObjects:aware (Texas only) and/or SchoolObjects:workshop. In addition, the role of Principal or an appropriate district level permission must be assigned to view this information.
Simply tap on the link and data will slide open for that staff member.
Use the arrows to switch between days. Use the Plus icon to add notes to the lesson plans that will be visible to the teacher. These notes can also be viewed in list form in the web-based version of SchoolObjects:appraise. It will also email the teacher when a note is added.

To view individual student results, tap on the icon of the student in the bottom right corner. The icon returns the view to the list of tests.
