Description

DERS training is a 6-hour online asynchronous course that prepares you to use the DERS effectively as a tool for classroom observation and continuous improvement. Participants will learn to identify, evaluate, and record classroom indicators which support development.

 

You may begin this course upon enrollment; users will have 60 days to complete the training and certification process. If after 60 days you have not completed the course, you will need to start again at the beginning. Your DERS subscription will begin on the first of the month following enrollment and will expire 356 days from that date. If you do not complete training within that year, you will need to re-enroll in the DERS training. Annual recertification through our DERS Recertification course, currently priced at $110, is required to maintain your subscription.

 

The training includes ten modules, which learners complete with the support of a DERS trainer.

1) Opening Activity: Observation

2) What and Why: Measuring What Matters

3) Using the App

4) Training Score Report Submission

5) DERS Quiz

6) Guided Practice 

7) OPTIONAL Practice Observation

8) Certification Task 

9) DERS and Coaching

10) Closing Reflection

 

Upon completion, DERS Observers will receive a one-year DERS Subscription and a DERS Observer Certificate.
