STAGES Software was developed by Saginaw Valley State University (SVSU) after being awarded a Title II Teacher Quality Grant by the United States Department of Education in 1999. Seeing a need to improve the teacher evaluation process, SVSU wrote the grant with the goal of enhancing teacher performance. The main push was to have the ability of running reports that would allow a school or district to pinpoint an areas of focus in regards to professional development. STAGES is now widely used across the United States and Canada.
