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 Classroom Climate. Go to your Settings tab and set it to On.
  2. Choose the Feedback You Want to Gather. You can decide whether you'd like to gather 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 when 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 when you are showing the join screen on the Projector:

    If you choose to check for feedback, students will see this screen as soon you reach the end slide:
    You must advance to the end slide for students to 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 Teacher Dashboard (Premium feature). This can give you insight about how students are, or are not, participating. 

      Open the Classroom Roster in the top right corner to see mood data:
    2. Then sort by Mood...
    3. ...or by Name:
    4. You can also see the average "thumbs up" rating for a Session on the Pear Deck Home Screen. First, click on the Deck title to open the modal menu. In this menu, click on the thumbs up rating percentage or the roster number... see a report of how the thumbs up rating relates to mood:

That's how you quickly collect feedback from students on how they are doing.
