Transforming Education (TransformEd) is a leading national organization that works with schools and systems to develop and assess students’ Mindsets, Essential Skills, and Habits (MESH). In order to help equip students with these social-emotional competencies (that research shows matters to success in college, career, and life), TransformEd created a set of toolkits for introducing MESH topics in schools. Panorama is proud announce that school leaders and teachers can now access TransformEd’s MESH toolkits on Playbook, Panorama’s professional learning community.
As schools collect feedback from their students, families, and teachers, we hear over and over from educators that some of the most important, actionable information comes from free response comments—and that educators want to hear more from their community. Yet knowing the right questions to ask and sorting through thousands of lines of text can be overwhelming.
About a year ago, we embarked on a journey to rethink free response questions on our surveys. Could we find a way to deliver actionable insights through well-designed questions and best-in-class text analytics?
Today, we’re excited to share the fruits of that project—free response questions that help collect the most relevant feedback from stakeholders, and a new Panorama analytics tool that automatically analyzes free response data in your school or district, visualizes the key themes, and highlights the most important responses for educators.
When we founded Panorama 5 years ago, we wanted to help schools use feedback from students, families, and teachers to build stronger schools. Today, Panorama serves over 5 million students in 7,000 schools in 40 states nationwide. These schools have relied on Panorama’s surveys and analytics as central tools for understanding student needs and progress across climate and culture, family engagement, and social-emotional learning.
Today we’re excited to introduce Panorama Student Success, a new platform that provides educators a complete picture of how every student is doing across academics, attendance, behavior, and social-emotional learning. With Panorama Student Success, educators can identify interventions and target supports to help every student thrive.
