Configure your Whetstone site with our robust feature set to match your school’s observation and coaching process.
Evaluation and performance management
Does your district have different rubrics for teachers, principals, and operations staff? All of them can live in Whetstone! We make it easy to show the right rubrics to the right people so evaluation is a breeze
Observation Capture & Video Coachi
Coaches use Whetstone’s “Running Record” to capture what they’re observing in the classroom second by second. Whether you call them literal notes, low-inference notes, or simply “notes,” this tool will make it easy for you to identify critical moments during your observations to increase the impact of your coaching conversations.
Action steps and goals
Whetstone’s Action Step and Goal managers make it easy for coaches to assign and share action steps with teachers, as well as track mastery, allowing leaders to measure teachers’ qualitative skill growth over time.
WEEKLY DATA MEETINGS
During Weekly Data Meetings (WDMs), instructional coaches help teachers identify student misconceptions and subsequently plan a re-teach lesson to help students master objectives. With Whetstone Meetings, schools can easily track every type of feedback meeting that occurs — WDMs, O3s, 1:1s, or standard observation debriefs.
Whetstone’s Evaluation Reports make it easy for coaches, principals, HR managers, and data specialists to pull the evaluation data they need for end of year reporting.
Whetstone’s Coaching Reports make it easy to see where teachers are struggling with instructional practice, so that instructional leaders can deliver PD that is personalized to each teacher’s individual growth needs.
Teacher Development Timeline/Portfolio
Like your Facebook Feed, but for coaching! All coaching interactions over the school year roll up in a neat list to give teachers transparency into their professional growth and invest them in their place as a member of your school family.
Instructional Resource Library
Whetstone’s Instructional Resource Library makes it easy for schools to curate a library of best practices with all types of content — videos, documents (e.g., lesson plans), instructional practice guides, audio files, etc.
