Focusing on Teacher Impact

Cognia’s Teacher Observation Tool helps teachers, schools, and districts take the pulse of learner-centric instruction.

Promote teachers’ professional growth to help students succeed

Support your teachers with formative, actionable feedback that can improve instruction and help students thrive. As part of the Enhanced and Premium levels of Cognia membership for institutions, you’ll have access to the Teacher Observation Tool—a reliable and valid instrument that helps administrators and teachers create a positive climate and culture in classrooms. Simultaneously, teachers can use the data to improve their own pedagogical skills.

The Teacher Observation Tool is available exclusively at the Enhanced and Premium levels of the Cognia Membership Program.

I love the fact that the Cognia Teacher Observation Tool is all-encompassing. It makes sure that teachers use culturally responsive teaching practices and assists teachers with pedagogy and overall instructional practices. It is both user friendly and receiver friendly."
