Inform Teaching Practice

Tripod surveys offer a valuable opportunity to evaluate teaching practice from multiple perspectives. Tripod Surveys can help you:
  • Gather insightful feedback
    We 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 opportunities
    The 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.
  • Impact Results

    This feedback driven approach leads to increased student engagement, improved pedagogy, and ultimately, better academic outcomes across all district schools.

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. The 7Cs Student Student Perception survey is centered around the 7Cs Framework of Effective Teaching. This framework represents the best set of teaching practices:

  • Care
    Demonstrate warmth and provide emotional support.
  • Confer
    Encourage and value students’ ideas and input.
  • Captivate
    Spark and maintain student interest in learning.
  • Clarify

    Explain clearly, check for understanding, and resolve confusion.

  • Consolidate

    Help students integrate and synthesize key ideas.

  • Challenge
    Press for effort and rigorous thinking.
  • Classroom Management
    Foster orderly, respectful, and on-task classroom behavior.

Tripod’s 7Cs framework of effective teaching and associated survey measures capture essential elements of instructional practice. Student survey results aligned with the 7Cs framework offer a streamlined way to provide actionable feedback for teachers and school leaders. Better survey results on the 7Cs components predict higher student achievement, engagement and motivation, as well as success skills and mindsets. Strategic use of Tripod surveys together with the 7Cs framework supports reflection, goal-setting, professional learning, and instructional improvement.
