Tools for Professional Learning & Evaluation

Analysis & Resources for Researchers


Through their participation in the MET project, education organizations have developed new tools to support teachers and instructional leaders in elevating the state of practice in the classroom. These tools now are available for use by practitioners in the field.

This page includes information on student perception surveys, video libraries of teaching, and coaching tools.

Student Perception Surveys

MET-Tripod Student Survey. Cambridge Education & Tripod Survey Assessments were used in the MET project analysis as a tool for capturing students' views on their classroom experiences. The version of the survey studied in the MET project is available free of charge to individuals and school systems for use in non-commercial purposes. You can download the surveys by going to their site and signing up. The surveys may be used for noncommercial purposes. For additional information about the surveys, administration, analysis, reporting and professional development, contact

Video Libraries of Teaching

SOE Teaching & Learning Exploratory. This website maintained by the University of Michigan School of Education contains authentic teaching videos, lesson materials, and interactive tools made available to individual and group subscribers. Included are multiple collections of teaching videos, including more than 1,500 recorded as part of the MET Extension project (METX). By special arrangement, individuals and institutions can upload their own videos into TLE private channels. For more on how teachers recorded their lessons for METX see the four-minute video Teachers Talk about Video Feedback.
