Why Ziplet

Ziplet is underpinned by a simple, yet powerful, idea: if we can make it easier for teachers to gather feedback from their students, then we can improve the responsiveness and quality of education systems.

Ziplet Logic Model

The Ziplet Logic Model demonstrates how teachers, students and leaders benefit from using Ziplet.

Instructional strategies

At Ziplet, we take a broad view of student feedback. Our questions focus on 7 key areas:

Formative assessment

Quickly check student comprehension. Ziplet lets teachers send questions quickly and easily, with student responses received instantly.

Instantly visualised student responses, including charts and word clouds, make it easy to identify which students "got it" and which need further support.

Student well-being

Check in with your students. The privacy and anonymity options provided by Ziplet give students a safe space to speak about issues affecting their personal well-being.

Teachers and schools can schedule regular questions to understand individual and collective student wellbeing as well as tracking issues over time. Schools can gain further insight by segmenting student data to understand particular areas where students might be struggling and use those insights to take action.

Classroom climate

Understand your classroom from your students perspective. Ziplet gives a unique insight into the experience of your students and can help identify issues that might otherwise go unnoticed. Access standardised classroom climate assessment questions designed by education experts.

Teacher practice

Track and increase your impact. Ziplet helps you understand collect feedback from the people matter most, and guides questions and responses to ensure feedback is focused, constructive and useful. Data-driven practice is enhanced with exportable insights from your students.

Relationship building

Build respectful relationships with your students. Ziplet offers a range of template questions aimed at building better relationships between students and teachers through mutual understanding.

Student reflection

Make it stick. Encouraging students to reflect on their learning can help beat the forgetting curve and identify areas for growth. Using Ziplet to prompt reflection can allow you to refresh learning both in and out of the classroom.

Social emotional learning

Ziplet provide a low risk space for students to respond to questions which might otherwise be sensitive. Encouraging students to think about and respond to questions which encourage them to reflect on their behaviour towards others, as well as their own thoughts and emotions can encourage greater honesty and participation in Social Emotional Learning.

Share anonymised results with the class can also provide a starting point for conversations about SEL topics.

Evidence base

Student to teacher feedback is universally cited as low cost but high impact approach to improving student outcomes.
