Should Your School District HR Department Use an On-Premise or Cloud Solution? http://bit.ly/25IIjte #edtech
If you are considering an HR talent management solution for your school district it is important to consider your software options. In fact, one of your most important considerations will be deciding between a cloud-based solution or one that is locally installed. Which option is best for you functionally, as well as from a cost perspective?

I recently applied to be a substitute teacher with Kelly Service after years of teaching History at both the middle and high school level and found TeacherMatch to be one of the worst experiences of my life. TeacherMatch requires all applicants to watch a series of training videos. As a veteran teacher the information was old hat, but not a bad review. Although you should know that if you are near people in the staff room and they are complaining about another staff member and you decline an invitation to join the conversation that is considered “Pursuit of truth,” because you took no action to actually find out the truth at all. What?! How is choosing not to bad mouth someone else instantly the pursuit of truth? After you finished all the training video you have to take a 90 minute "SmartPractices Assessment" which was full of vaguely worded questions with restrictive answers, so if you would do two different things you have to pick one. But wait if you don’t decide which one to choose quickly enough (75 seconds) you get a rude little note that basically says hurry up dummy you’re taking too long! It actually says something to the effect of trying to keep the test results valid and if you don’t answer within 75 seconds again they will end your test, because we think you’re trying cheating. It’s not like this is the ACT or Praxis, but it you’re really concerned about making sure no one else see your test questions require people to take the test at an authorized testing center or at the Kelly Services office. WAIT! I thought I had a 90 minute time limit and there are only 34 questions?! That means the real time limit is 42.5 minutes if you’re only allowed 75 seconds on each question. You lied to me!? I understand that the test needs to be done in one sitting and that you don’t want people going back and change your answers, that’s fine, but some questions take longer to answer than others. You already set one time limit; do you really need a second one? Let people decide how to use their own time on the test. The second test, the “Educator's Professional Inventory” is optional. That means it is 75 mostly opinion based questions, Agree or Disagree stuff. However, you guessed it once again you have a time limit of 90 minutes that means nothing because you have 75 seconds to answer each question. Although this time if you actually use all 75 seconds on each question you will run out of time to take the test. You will also see those same rude messages telling you that you’re too stupid to walk and chew gum at the same time, if you don’t answer within 75 seconds. These messages will still appear even if you have 75 minutes left of your time limit and are on the last question. How stupid it that? Honestly I’m not sure how often people try to cheat on opinion based tests, but I’m guessing it can’t be that often. Finally TeacherMatch fails repeatedly in their mission statement. As a TeacherMatch student I shut down the first time I saw one of those annoying popup came up telling me that I was taking too long to answer a question when still had more than enough time to left to finish the test a second time if I wanted. I also don’t think that a cliff notes version of a back to school in service training is enough to say that someone is highly qualified or that you have elevated the teaching profession; you didn’t actually cover any real classroom management or teaching skills. I don’t count read and follow the lesson plan exactly or call the office for everything question you have as teaching or classroom management skills. I could go on, but I think I have made my point.
