Student Feedback

Enable students to give appropriate feedback to teachers and the school




  • Students should have more control on what they're learning. There needs to be a transparent way that allows students to give feedback and it needs to get implemented. Therefore, the curriculum also needs to be more adaptable.
  • The lack of giving feedback creates a vacuum. That's why it's important to allow for student feedback.
  • It's difficult to decide how the feedback process works. Who sees what and how or where?
  • It's also difficult to decide how do you ask the right questions? When the questions are not asked the right way, you don't get valuable answers. There is the risk of biases.
  • Students thought the length of the questionnaire is good. The format could be better. Students decided how the questionnaire should look like, what kind of feedback they want to give.
  • One needs to take care of teachers. Sometimes when you complete a questionnaire it can be done not well or in a mean way. But if you do it on your own terms, it can be more valuable. If we have many feedback we can compare if it's an average opinion or not.
  • The questionnaire needs to be short, with the most important questions.


  • Create questionnaire approved by students.
  • Gather first answers by students on different teachers.

What's the problem you want to solve and why?

Students should have the opportunity to give feedback on lessons or teaching units that meet the following criteria: time-ly, targeted, differentiated, anonymised. In addition, it should be possible to guide and document the subsequent steps, i.e. the discussion of the feedback, the agreement of measures and the review of the effectiveness of measures in a simple form (in such a way that the data “belongs” to the teacher and made transparent to the class without giving up the personal protection of those affected). The Student Feedback project is intended to contribute to a new feedback culture at school.

Schülerinnen und Schüler sollen die Möglichkeit haben, ein Feedback zu Unterricht bzw. Unterrichtseinheiten zu geben, das die folgenden Kriterien erfüllt: zeitnah, gezielt, differenziert, anonymisiert. Ausserdem soll es möglich sein, die nachfolgenden Schritte, also die Besprechung des Feedbacks, die Vereinbarung von Massnahmen und der Rückblick auf die Wirksamkeit von Massnahmen in einer einfachen Form anzuleiten und zu dokumentieren (in einer Weise, dass das Feedback der Lehrperson „gehört“ und der Klasse gegenüber Transparenz hergestellt wird, ohne den persönlichen Schutz der Betroffenen aufzugeben). Das Projekt Student Feedback soll einen Beitrag für eine neue Feedback-Kultur an der Schule leisten.

What's the solution / project you are suggesting?

We develop a tool (an app, an online questionnaire ...) with which the feedback can be obtained/given and documented accord-ing to the criteria mentioned.

Wir entwickeln ein Tool (eine App, einen Onlinefragebogen ...), mit dem das Feedback gemäss den genannten Kriterien eingeholt/gegeben und dokumentiert werden kann.

How could this idea be developed or tested at a 30-hours Hackathon?

A tool will be developed in the collaboration of teachers, pu-pils, programmers and a feedback expert.

In der Zusammenarbeit von Lehrpersonen, Schülerinnen und Schülern, Programmieren und einem Experten für Feedback wird ein Tool entwickelt.
