In support of monitoring teacher professional development at scale, SoukTel SMS Goal Track allows central offices to track teacher self-assessed progress reports sent in by teachers across an entire country. Using fully automated technology, SoukTel's system sends out a monthly or quarterly tracking survey in which teachers self-assess their progress at meeting stated professional development goals, or other evaluation metrics as desired. Teachers who rate themselves as struggling or failing are automatically highlighted in the SoukTel system, facilitating targeted follow-up interventions and enabling demand-driven programmatic support at scale.
SoukTel’s Unique Features:
System Management from Web or Phone | SoukTel's customized messaging platform enables partner staff to send alerts and initiate surveys from a secure web interface or authorized mobile phones—facilitating program management from the field. Staff do not need Internet or land line phones in order to manage the system.
Flexible and Scalable | SoukTel's current system can be used among small groups or large beneficiary cohorts with no additional adaptation needed. Messages can be purchased on a “pay as you go” basis, with no fixed contract obligations, minimum purchase requirements, or expiration dates.
Advanced Message Send-Out Options | Customized features enable partner staff to create alerts in advance, and then program them for send-out at a later time/date (and/or on a repeating basis). Alert messages can also be sent to multiple recipient groups at the same time—enabling large-scale messaging campaigns to be launched at the touch of a button.
Fully Customized and Integrated | SoukTel's messaging systems meet partner’s exact specifications—including custom logo/branding features, user interfaces/manuals, and integration into other partner websites/databases.
Multi-lingual | Messages sent by SoukTel's system can be written in any language (French, English, mother tongues, etc.) and SoukTel's platform can be translated into any language.
