At FeedbackFruits, we want to ensure our tools are truly effective in producing positive learning outcomes. That's why we conduct evaluations with all our partner institutions to measure the impact of our tools on teaching and learning after a certain period of adoption. Since the implementation time varies among the institutions, so far we have gathered and analyzed data from 13 universities. And the key findings are summarized in this article.
