One powerful platform with deep dive and pulse surveys, powerful analytics and action planning.
Schools are busy places and most survey tools require too much management and special things to remember. Kelvin isn't like that. Fast and invisible are often the better parts of a delightful experience, and having something that “just works” makes it much easier to weave into the fabric of schools.
Select from our library of research-backed questions featuring 30+ themes ranging from growth mindset and belonging to sense of safety -- designed by leaders in integrating evidence-based social and emotional learning into schools.
Each Pulse survey is meant to be completed quickly—taking three to four minutes. There aren’t any special apps to download, no complicated usernames or passwords to forget, and no direction needed from teachers or admins. This increases participation (~94% on avg. for students), reduces disruptions to instructional time, lessens the burden for administrators and teachers, and increases the chances that answers are honest and not just random data.
This isn’t an SEL-in-a-box solution you have to adopt wholesale. You’re in control, because we know that every school starts off at different places. Create your own surveys and control survey pacing, who sees results, advanced options, and which resources are made available.
Kelvin includes tools to coordinate follow-ups and take action. You can assign follow-up tasks and bookmark results so they're saved in one place and always a single click away.
Pulse looks a lot like students’ favorite applications so it feels friendly and familiar. These “pattern affordances” are based on the power of habit and present a huge factor of effective interaction design. They save users’ effort in keeping many things in memory simultaneously and encourage open, candid feedback.
Kelvin helps you identify opportunities for impact by surfacing drivers of culture and hotspots across schools and demographics. You can benchmark the results against organizations like yours and track your progress all within the platform.
Drive action and measure impact with a real-time understanding of your stakeholders' needs. Kelvin Pulse gives education leaders a continuous stream of the voice of their people so they can make the best decisions for and about their learning community.
Examine your school's results by filtering across different variables including school, grade level, program, gender, race/ethnicity and other groups created from your SIS or within Kelvin. Determine the goals that are right for your organization to elevate action planning at your school/district.
Monitor progress, spot trends, and hone in on issues with group and demographic filters automatically created from your SIS, or create your own custom fields and groups within Kelvin.
Respond to students' real-time needs and see how their moods and perceptions of SEL competencies and school climate are changing with new contexts throughout the year
Leaders and teams have all the tools they need to find a focus, build a plan based on real-world inspirations from schools like yours, and collaborate on effective action.
Export the data from Kelvin for visualization alongside other important metrics with CSV exports and Kelvin's API, so you can get the whole picture.
"We’ve been very pleased with our Kelvin implementation and we’re very engaged in the data reports. Lots of positive conversations and work with kids has been prompted by the real-time, actionable data.”
“In my decade-plus years working in schools, I have found Kelvin to be not only one of the best ways to recruit honest, comprehensive student feedback - but also one of the best ed-tech innovations, period. Moreover, the Kelvin team is thoughtful, responsive, and caring - true partners in the work, rather than a mere client/vendor relationship. I cannot speak more highly of the simple yet profound Kelvin platform.”
