Much of professional learning and school goal setting is derived from educators and policymakers. But what if we asked students, and incorporated their views of their own learning experiences? What does the research say about the efficacy of using student voice?

View this edWebinar or listen to the podcast to learn about going beyond a survey to using actionable student feedback to improve academics and school climate. We also explored what research tells us and heard from two expert educators using student survey data and analytics with their school communities.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 school and district leaders and librarians and is part of the Leading by Design: 6 Initiatives You Can’t Afford to Get Wrong district leadership series where you learn from leaders who are pulling together the elements of successful schooling.

Tripod Education

Tripod Education Partners works with states, districts, and schools to gather, organize, and report on student, teacher, and family perspectives. As pioneers in the field, Tripod’s nationally recognized surveys were first developed in 2001 by Dr. Ronald F. Ferguson of Harvard University with educators in Ohio. Tripod surveys were first administered as part of a school-based initiative focused on raising achievement for all students while reducing the Black/White achievement gap. Tripod surveys include measures to capture student perceptions of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
