The username for the online system is your UID number. Your UID is located under "Personal Infomation" in TimeKeeper.
If you want to print an observation, the completed check boxes may not show up when you print unless you turn your background printing on. Try this:
A. Using Internet Explorer: Go to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab>scroll to Printing>check the box next to Print background colors and images>click Apply>click OK
B. Using Firefox: On the File menu, click Page Setup. On the Format & Options tab>Options>select Print background (colors & images)>click OK
C. Using Safari: On the File menu, click Print. On the Copies & Pages pop-up menu, click Safari. Select Print Backgrounds. Click OK
The classroom observation process should work as follows:
A) An administrator observes a teacher and transfers that information into the online system during the observation or at a later date and saves the electronic observation. (A pre-observation conference should have been held prior to the observation if this is the first observation for that teacher during the year.)
B) Once all information on the form is fully completed, the administrator informs the teacher to sign into the system and view the observation and the administrator schedules a time with the teacher for a post-observation conference to be held within a 10 school day window.
C) A teacher signs into the system and views the observation in preparation for the post conference (teachers cannot make any changes to the data). Teachers can collect artifacts to present at the post-observation conference.
D) The administrator will visit the teacher and make any necessary changes to the observation based on artifacts, the discussion, etc. It’s also possible no changes will be made. (If changes are made, the administrator can click the save icon and refresh the screen to view the changes. Do not click the done icon yet since both parties will be adding electronic signatures.)
F) After the administrator has electronically signed their observation, the teacher then needs to sign into the system and read the observation, view any changes and look for the Teacher Signature check box on the left side at the bottom of the observation page and assuming all is well, click on the check box next to Teacher Signature. (It is possible for both to sign from the administrator’s login information but this will not allow teachers to add any comments at the bottom in the Teacher’s Comments section.)
G) When the teacher clicks on this box, a separate small screen appears containing their UID number. The teacher then enters their password and clicks on authenticate. Once the teacher has done this, the Teacher’s Comments box is live and available for teachers to add any further information but only if they are logged into the system under their own UID and password. Any comments must be entered at the time teachers sign the document.
