Leaders Trust Tripod

Easy, Targeted Support
Survey responses are analyzed at the classroom-level, and presented in user-friendly, online reports designed for teachers, school leaders, and district personnel. Reports highlight areas of strength and opportunities for improvement for each teacher, so teachers and leaders can quickly gauge where to focus attention.

Rooted in Educational Equity
Tripod surveys were first administered as part of a school-based initiative focused on raising achievement for all students while reducing the achievement gap. Tripod surveys include measures to capture student perceptions of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Validated by Research
Tripod is a Tier 1 - strong evidence-based intervention. In fact, many research studies have highlighted the reliability and validity of data collected with Tripod surveys, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Measure of Effective Teaching (MET) Project, which used Tripod surveys as one of its key metrics with more than 3,000 teachers.

Tripod surveys reflect millions of student responses across nearly a quarter of a million classrooms to benchmark and calibrate results.
