Verso’s unique Instant Check-in uses supervised machine learning to reveal student understanding and wellbeing during the lesson.
Checking in with students provides actionable feedback on how lessons are being received by learners, informing adjustments in planning and practice to amplify teacher impact.
“The best classroom data I have ever seen”
Prof. John Hattie
What are you learning today?
Student responses across core subjects are coded by Verso using the rubric below and used by school leadership to measure impact
*The percentage of students that leave the classroom being able to clearly explain what they were learning
Teacher Clarity Improves Wellbeing
Students who can explain what they are learning in class feel more positive
As part of the Verso Instant Check-in students are required to answer the question: How did you feel during today’s lesson?
Students are given a list of 16 adjectives to select from. Those students who could clearly explain what they are learning were 60% more likely to select only positive adjectives from the list.
Research shows that within just 10 check-ins, teachers use the Verso dashboards to adjust their teaching and increase the percentage of students who can clearly explain what they are learning by 51%.

Mr David Cupolo, Principal
Kind words about Verso
"The Check-in Dashboard revealed to me the difference between the student perception and the reality of their self-assessment, by seeing what students have written it is a lot clearer as to what support they need"
"Verso aligns with VicSRC priorities to support students’ mental health, wellbeing and learning, by empowering student voice in all aspects of their learning"
“Verso has the best classroom data I have ever worked with”
"The Verso Check-in actually helps me feel more relaxed as a teacher and be more clear and focused, to know what I did and to know what impact I have. Verso gives me greater clarity around what I need to do next"
"Using Verso as a reflective practice tool has provided our students with voice and agency, which in turn has built confidence for our teachers to discuss their impact and focus their PD at the point of most need"
"We want to establish the student reflection tool as a fundamental piece of our teacher practice, self-reflection, and implementation to increase student voice/feedback to impact instruction"
