Rick Cappiello, Technical Assistant, Nassau Community College offered a review on Capterra:
"I truly believe this is the only way to go!"
"As a seasoned educator, with a long history as an administrator, scorer, and teacher, I have had experience with Educational Vistas from several points of view.
In my most recent role as MS/HS Principal, I used EVI for scoring our ELA, Mathematics, and Science assessments. The advantages were profound. EVI picked up all our assessment materials at school, and delivered them as they had been scored. This was done cleanly, painlessly, and on time.
Under these conditions, I was able to escape the cumbersome and disruptive process of having my teachers leave their classrooms to go to regional BOCES scoring sites, prepare lessons for substitute teachers, and capture the residual classroom results when they returned. My students were spared the disruption of having a parade of substitute teachers/strangers teaching them in their classes. Further, my ‘Substitute Caller” escaped the stressful nightmare of running out of “Subs”, and I was spared the burden of covering classes when a shortage of “Subs” made my job ridiculous.
The costs associated with EVI’s service compared very favorably to the usual financial burdens incurred by my district: salaries of substitute teachers, and travel expenses of our faculty attending BOCES scoring sites.
Further, the respectful climate the EVI management brings to the scoring experiences is exceptional. All scorers are treated with admiration and gratitude for their service. Their questions are addressed, and helpful consultations are a constant part of the process. The work environment is superior.
I would not hesitate to suggest that any school district use this service to manage assessment issues. I truly believe this is the only way to go!"

When it comes to understanding best and current practices,
EVI has done its homework
"I have worked with Educational Vistas for many years and have found their staff to be well informed of best and current practices. In addition, Educational Vistas software helps school districts operationalize current mandates facilitating our ability to implement evolving APPR Regulations to include data analysis and the observation process. What is more, Educational Vistas synthesizes customer feedback and uses the information to improve their software programs."
