Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Torace cost?
Torace is always free for event participants. Institutions managing events have unlimited use for the first year and two free events per year after that. Starting in 2021 we will release our pricing plans for additional events and add-ons.
What do intuitions managing events get with the free version after the first year?
-Create and manage two matching events per year.
-Unlimited participants (mentors and mentees) in each event.
-Unlimited event administrators.
-Unlimited internal sites and partner sites (typically schools and prep programs for student teacher matching).
-Assign approvers to your internal sites to facilitate mentor approval (typically school principals).
-Assign event administrators to be internal approvers for your mentees.
-Allow mentors and/or mentees to review possible matches in their pools and star their favorites.
-Match between 1 and 3 mentees to each mentor.
-Participants can have different roles in different events and manage those through their single login.
What aspects of Torace can I customize?
-Define your institution’s placement pools (typically a mix of grade band and licensure; our team can help you with this and provide examples).
-Add a custom message to event invites.
-Add custom messages to notification emails.
-Create your own event descriptions.
Does the tool come with advisory services?
We will help you get set up and provide you with some helpful guides to implementation. If you would like more comprehensive support, let us know.
What else do you offer?
-Exit surveys for program improvement.
-Additional reports for pipeline cultivation.
-Strategic HR consulting services.
What will I need to do to get started?
We will walk you through this when we set up your institutional account, but basically, we will need:
-The emails of your event administrators to invite them to the system with event admin privileges.
-List of your mentor and mentee sites (and approver emails if you are using approvers).
-List of the pools you want to use (we will help you create an optimal list for your institution and how you intend to use Torace).
Since Torace is free, can I just set up an account and play around with it?
Anyone can create a basic Torace Educator Profile, but to be able to experiment with the functionality as an event administrator we will need to set up your institution with an account and grant you access to that account with event administrator privileges. If you are a mentor or a mentee you will need to be invited to an event by an event administrator to participate.
Is my data secure in Torace?
We use state-of-the-art, up-to-date, cloud-based safety tools. If you choose to participate in an event, approvers, event admins and other participants in the event may see portions of your event profile because that information is what drives the approvals, preferences and matching process. You can read our privacy agreement for more details.
