One of the best-known providers of student surveys is launching a new, free service for teachers, aimed at helping educators use the results to refine their classroom practices.

The new project by Tripod Education Partners, a Cambridge, Mass.-based entity perhaps best known for its work on a study of teacher effectiveness underwritten by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is also focused on teaching practices—from a different angle.

Tripod will give teachers free access to a platform that allows them to conduct annual surveys of students, designed to support their professional growth. Teachers get the results within hours, along with confidential reports designed to support their classroom strategies.
