The Tripod Project administers surveys with students, teachers and parents to document attitudes, perceptions, experiences, and practices. The resulting data are returned to districts and individual schools in forms suitable to inform and influence deliberations about ways to improve schools, raise achievement, and narrow gaps. The surveys are sometimes referred to as questionnaires and comprise:
- Student surveys on classroom conditions, tailored for grade levels K-2, 3-5 and 6-12
- Teacher surveys focused on pedagogy, teacher-student relations, and working conditions
Surveys are available in hard copy or online and take the average class less than 30 minutes to complete. Ron Ferguson leads the research, analysis and reporting associated with the resulting data.
