We’re finally getting data that is helping us improve our instruction, along with helping the kids understand that we truly do care about them. It's been a great journey.

How does it work?
Copilot-Elevate is a professional learning program that uses student voice surveys to enhance professional practice. It gives educators ongoing, formative feedback and best practices so they can create engaging and equitable experiences that support academic and social-emotional learning for every student. Read the research.
1. Elevate Student Voice
A 5-10 minute, customizable survey sheds light on the way students are experiencing your class or school.
2. Review Feedback
Your confidential report will show how students’ experiences are promoting or hindering equitable learning.
3. Learn New Practices
Access a library of teacher-tested practices, and select some to try with your own students.
4. Track Your Improvement
Rerun the survey to see how students experience new practices. Repeat Steps 1-4 to keep improving.
Our Partners Say…
I think [my teacher] cares what I think because she is asking us to take this survey about her teaching. If she didn’t care what I had to say, she wouldn't be asking us to do this survey.
— Student Participant
It’s a great tool. The survey is really asking the right questions and putting data in front of teachers that can be helpful.
— Josh Maisel, district administrator in California
I wanted to get authentic feedback from my students to help better my craft, and to better help them in the learning process.
— Staci Durnin, 6th grade math and science teacher in New York, NY
