Inform Teaching Practice
Gather insightful feedbackWe gather feedback from students about their learning environments, response to instructional practice, and their relationship with their teachers to provide a holistic understanding of the classroom to measure the instructional effectiveness.
Know your district's strengths and growth opportunitiesThe data collected across multiple constructs provides school districts an insight to the areas of strengths and areas for improvement across their schools that allows them to look for trends, patterns, areas of inequities to provide targeted professional development programs and to inform support structures to enhance the teaching quality across their district.
This feedback driven approach leads to increased student engagement, improved pedagogy, and ultimately, better academic outcomes across all district schools.
Prioritize the Student Experience
Ensure your schools prioritize student voice and agency to create a student-centered learning environment. The Tripod 7Cs Student Perception survey is a student level survey that collects students’ feedback on their experience in a particular classroom with a particular teacher.
