The following outlines how to conduct LEAD observations and walkthroughs using Eduphoria’s new Strive system. This officially replaces the PDAS system. Please do not conduct any additional walkthroughs or observations using the PDAS system.

These instructions only apply to setting up teacher evaluations. Additional instructions will be posted for setting up Non-Instructional/Instructional Support staff in Strive.


Step 1: Login to School Objects and click Strive.


Step 2: Click “Campus View” from the left sidebar menu.


Step 3: Select your campus, if applicable.


Step 4: You should now see your staff. Switch to list view by clicking “List”.


Step 5: For each teacher, click “Not Set” under “Appraisee Type”. Change to “LEAD – Teachers”. After clicking Save, Appraisee Type will now show “LEAD – Teachers”.


Step 6: Either click the teacher’s name or the plus sign to enter into that teacher’s record. Once in, click whichever part of the evaluation you want to complete — Walkthroughs or Formal Observations. Click the plus sign next to either of those and select from the drop down which version applies.


Step 7: Once the observation or walkthrough is complete, click Save and then “Let staff view”. After that, you’ll be able to electronically sign, as will the teacher. That’s it!


Bonus: When filling out your evidence and feedback, you can click and drag the corner of the box to make it as big as you want.
