NSI’s Classroom Climate Questionnaire (CCQ) provides an economical and effective way to gather student feedback about their experiences of the learning environment. The CCQ offers a valid and reliable means to assess features of the learning environment (related to relationships, delivery and assessment) that are important determinants of a range of affective and cognitive outcomes.
The CCQ offers a meaningful framework to help teachers plan targeted improvement efforts, initiate discussions with students about learning (metacognition), and work with students to improve and co-construct the environment.
Classroom climate is the tone, atmosphere, or ambiance created through interactions between the teacher, the students, the learning content, and how it is delivered and assessed. It is the classroom climate that provides the context (or sets the stage) for teaching and learning.
