Please note that BloomBoard is now EdReflect.
NPS is continuing to partner with EdReflect. to provide a fully-functional performance evaluation and professional development management platform. Every school administrator and every teacher in the district will have a EdReflect account and should be logging in to the system on a regular basis. Teachers and administrators will log in to EdReflect using their NPS email addresses. If you do not have a NPS e-mail address, please reach out to the IT Help Desk as soon as possible to ensure your access to EdReflect.
There are a variety of ways to get assistance with using the EdReflect System:

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I’m an evaluator but when I log in, it looks like my account is set up like a teacher’s account. What do I do?
A: Most administrators are set up as both a “Learner” and an “Observer” in the system. When you are using the system to evaluate teachers, set your profile Observer mode by hovering your mouse over your name in the upper right corner of the EdReflect screen, and then selecting “Observer” from the drop down list. To change the default mode that appears when you sign into EdReflect, go to your profile (select “Profile” from the drop down menu that appears when you click on your name in the upper-right corner of the screen) and select the appropriate mode for “Default Role”.
Q: How do I make a change to the list of teachers on my dashboard (e.g. I am missing a teacher that I need to evaluate, or I need to remove a teacher that is appearing on my list).
A: For any changes to teachers on your dashboard or any questions about your teacher roster, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: I am getting a message that says I cannot use Internet Explorer. What do I do?
A: EdReflect is designed to work best with other internet browsers – Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. The IT department installed Firefox on all computers in the district; there should be an icon for EdReflect on your desktop as well. If you cannot locate it on your machine, please contact the IT Help Desk at 973-733-8777.
Q: Who has access to view my information in the system?
A: If you are a teacher, your information can be viewed by your principal and the observer who conducted your observations or goal-setting conference. No other teachers can view any of your information. Additionally, no one (including your principal and your observer) can view any information that you enter in the system directly until you share it with them. You can share forms by clicking on the “Share” button in the upper right corner of the screen.
Q:When I tag evidence in my notes, what happens to that tag?
A: Tagging evidence allows you to synthesize your notes and more easily determine the appropriate rating for each competency and indicator. Once you tag evidence on a note-taking page, the evidence will be stored in two places: 1) On the “Review Collected Evidence” page, which allows you to organize, edit, and delete tags; and 2) On the Add/Review Ratings page, which automatically sorts your tagged evidence by competency and indicator. Once you’re ready to assign ratings, you can easily review the evidence that you’ve already tagged to determine the appropriate rating.
