Feedback when it matters
The genesis of focused feedback
More than a mini survey
Live Formative Feedback with Bluepulse is more than just a quick survey. While many may think that increasing survey frequency is the answer, we are concerned about survey fatigue.
Bluepulse is not a mini survey. It’s an always-on channel where questions, thoughts, ideas and information can be shared in a focused manner. The classroom is always in flux and an always-on channel keeps you in the moment.
