Snapshot - BETA

​Snapshot is an easy and effective way to gather actionable feedback on things that matter in your classroom.

Students having conversation with instructorOur first Snapshot module - Rapport and Course Design - gathers student feedback on student-faculty engagement and rapport as well as on elements of course design and quality that lead to effective learning.

The questions have been developed by our team of experts and are focused on components of strong co-learning environments such as interaction, organization and effective feedback.

Other Snapshot modules are in development.  


    Snapshot is easy to understand and implement, and produces meaningful and powerful feedback!
    Snapshot can be used by a single faculty member, a department, or adopted at the university level and can be implemented mid-term or end-of-term. 
    Results are delivered within days with feedback broken down by Course Design and student/faculty Rapport categories.
    Results include actionable suggestions for faculty exploration, meant to increase faculty and student success.
    The feedback is benchmarked so that you can compare your results with IDEA's national database.

Set-up is easy with most of the work done by IDEA staff.

Snapshot is confidential.
