How They Work

 Feedback Frames



Find Agreements Fast!

Feedback Frames are secret rating ballots with instant visual results.

Use them to facilitate equal opportunity workshops that are collaborative, efficient and fun.

No technical support required.


Any Age.  Any Topic.

In the boardroom,  classroom,  innovation lab, or community hall.


Secret Voting

Votes are private and anonymous. No one sees the results during the process of giving their opinion.  This avoids the bandwagon effect and groupthink. Can’t do that with sticker voting!

Looking at ideas


Customizable Rating Scales

Modify one of our free templates or create your own rating sheet.

Fits standard letter size (8 ½” x 11”) and A4 paper.

Empty Feedback Frames

Use any rating scale you can think of in any language you can write.

various kinds of scales translated


Many Token Styles

Use the smallest size tokens to fit up to 30 votes per column. Use larger tokens when you only have a few participants. Also fits most coins.

FF black on white various tokens

Use different kinds of tokens to represent different kinds of participants.

Validate Results

Use signatures to confirm only one vote per person. There should be the same number of tokens dropped as signatures written.  No ballot box stuffing here.



Table Top, Wall Hanging or Handheld

Attach a statement and signature sheet to the convenient front cover clips, and use hidden holes on the back to hang Feedback Frames on a wall. Use the sturdy built-in stand for setting up on a flat surface.   Alternatively, you can pass them around, handheld.

Cover Locks Down

A hole at the bottom passes through the cover and frame. Tie it closed to keep curious cats from peaking at the results before everyone is done voting.

Lego Compatible

Attach Lego to the back to make your own add-ons, such as pen holders, clipboards for related information, or something else silly and brilliant.



Rugged and Reliable

Built with thick polycarbonate plastic and steel. Designed to survive a grade-one class or the world’s most rowdy committee meeting. Works out of the box, instantly, any time. No batteries to charge. No network to connect. No login, password or IT support required.

dave meslinFeedback Frames provide an alternative to the toxic polarization between fabricated Yes/No dichotomies – allowing any government, agency or community group to accurately collect nuanced data that reflects the diverse opinions in a room. No other system or tool provides the amount of flexibility, accuracy and convenience that has been designed into Feedback Frames.
