How to use Classroom Climate

Classroom Climate gives teachers an extra layer of insight into how students are learning. By gathering feedback about student mood and feelings of achievement, teachers can gain insight into the success of a lesson while helping students become more self-aware. 



  1. Turn on the Classroom Climate Add-on. Go to your Add-ons tab to turn on the integration.
  2. Choose the Feedback You Want to Gather. You can decide whether you'd like to gather just mood data at the beginning of class, lesson feedback at the end of class, or both.

  3. Present a Lesson. Now every time you present a Pear Deck, depending on the options you chose in the last step, we will present students with a mood gathering question on the first slide, and a lesson feedback question after you end the Session.  You don't have to do anything else to make that happen.
  4. If you choose to check for mood, students will see this screen as soon as they join the Session.

    If you choose to check for feedback, students will see this screen as soon as you've ended the Session. Note: You must click the "End Session" button before students will see this question. They will be able to answer it up to one hour after you've ended the Session.

  5. Use the Data. There are a number of ways you can use the data once collected:  

    1. You can see the mood data right away on the Session Dashboard. This can give you insight while teaching about how students are (or are not) participating.

    2. After class, you can see the average "Thumbs Up" rating for a particular Session or Deck by clicking on it from your Pear Deck Home Screen.

Finally, you can see a quick report of how the "Thumbs Up" rating relates to mood by clicking on the Thumbs Up percentage.
