Case StudiesOur client in this case was looking for an app to help with classroom observation. They had in mind a profession-specific application that could be used by administrators and teaching peers for on-site observing, reporting and feedback. Throughout the development process, features were designed to conform to all state and federal education institutional standards. Observers can select from six instructional categories, and features include point-by-point evaluation tools that can provide real-time feedback directly to the teacher, if needed. In addition, this app—which can be customized to any educational setting—includes features that allow observers to compile detailed notes during classroom evaluation that include specific examples during their observation which can be assembled into a full report later. Instructors and administrators from the preschool to collegiate level alike will benefit from the evaluation tools provided by this application.
I can give you a high recommendation concerning the Appvisors' team. Regarding the quality of work, I have always had very high standards, and my expectations demand very high quality performance. I found Appvisors' to have met and at times exceed my expectations (for example, the graphic art embedded in the app is very professional). Time frames were continually met - no excuses - no compromises. The original budget is the one that we adhered to, and there were no surprises. Additionally, I would characterize the working relationship as very accommodating, professional, and responsive. These are glowing terms I know, but very true. My app provides a foundation for school personnel to observe and evaluate teachers. I believe that honest evaluation is crucial to success. Based upon my experience, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Spencer Forrest and his team.By Dan Owens, of Look For App
