Mood Checks

The smart and easy way to assess the spirit and well-being of your students.

What are Mood Checks?

Mood checks are a simple way your students can share how they feel and what are the factors impacting their overall mood.

Mood checks use intelligently designed and interactive surveys which students can use to reflect on their emotions and thoughts using various ‘Emotion labels’, ‘Mood Influences’, ‘Energy & Happiness quotient’, and even a free text field to articulate their emotions.

Collected responses are then presented to you to show a collective Mood summary of the school and you can even dive deeper into reviewing each student's mood & reasons.
