Let’s See What We Think!

The best in-person tool to see collective opinions, quickly and reliably.


What are Feedback Frames?

Traditional group opinion techniques are riddled with inefficiencies and social biases. Complicated online tools add unnecessary friction.

Feedback Frames are simple analog tools for secret score voting on many options.  Participants rate each idea by dropping a token in a range of slots that are hidden by a cover, with results later revealed as a visual graph of opinions.

Clear and Insightful Results

Voting patterns tell a nuanced story about participants’ opinions on dozen of ideas. From clear consensus to weak majority acceptance to disagreement, polarized, confusion, and other possibilities.  See example results from real meetings

Hands-on Student Engagement

Get a quick snapshot of honest responses from the whole class without using technology.  Ideal for activity stations, inquiry-based learning, and collective student voice.


Dotmocracy is Broken

Sticker dot voting is a popular facilitation method, but it’s severely flawed. Problems include the bandwagon effect, vote splitting, choice overload, and how easy it is to cheat.

Feedback Frames use secret score voting to give you reliable results every time.

No Dotmocracy. Not dot voting

Why Use Feedback Frames?

Easy Low Tech

Feedback Frames eliminate friction around live voting. No wasted time logging in to networks or connecting to web tools.

Secret Voting

Unlike most non-electronic methods, votes are blind and anonymous through the entire process. No social bias, bandwagon effect or groupthink.

Fully Customizable

Modify one of our ​free templates​ or create your own rating sheet. Use ​coloured tokens​ to represent different kinds of participants.

Validated Results

Participants sign every time they drop a token to confirm one vote per person. The number of tokens dropped should equal signatures listed for each frame. Opinions remain secret. See Example Results

Customer Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what the community has to say.

Adrian SegarAuthor of “Conferences That Work: Creating Events That People Love”

...a refreshing alternative to the complex (and typically expensive) high-tech audience response system methods routinely used for anonymous voting at meetings.

Bob EckertMaster Facilitator

If you are tired of the "Group Think" that always creeps into dot-voting in convergence activities, and want something visually appealing then you're going to love Feedback Frames.

Mimi ThomasMiddle School Teacher, Toronto District School Board

What a fun and smart way for prioritizing student questions for inquiry based learning. I’m sure classmates would appreciate doing peer evaluation anonymously. And wow, could this help in staff meetings too.

Jerry KohDirector of Systems Innovation, MaRS Solutions Lab

I thought it might take a lot of time, or that people might be confused. But it was in fact really quick for feedback on 10 ideas. And people looked like they had fun.

Rosa ZubizarretaDiapraxis, Dynamic Facilitation Associates

It's great to discover this well-designed, highly versatile tool! Low-tech, high-touch, super useful way to get an initial read at the start of a group process, a final vote at the end, and/or a "straw poll" in the middle!

Jonathan GaultManager, Eva's Phoenix Print Shop

They work really well in our all-staff meetings with 25 people. The best part is definitely the reveal of the results. It gets everyone really excited and prompts lots of discussions that probably wouldn’t happen otherwise.
