Share Your Ideas and Rank the Ideas of Others
SUSD values your input and in an effort to collect your input, we are using a new tool called Thoughtexchange. This is how it works:
- You will be asked to answer an open ended question.
- The system will also ask you to provide some demographic information.
- You will then be able to submit as many responses as you choose to enter. Once you complete your entries, you will move to Star.
- In Star, you'll see your thoughts and the thoughts of others and assign stars to each thought (from 1-5) depending on how strongly you agree or disagree with the idea. Thoughtexchange keeps confidential who shared each thought and who assigned what ratings. You can rate as many thoughts as you'd like before moving on to the last step, Discover.
- Discover is where you can see all the thoughts that have been submitted, sorted by the average star rating.
