How did I get this score?

Our Sojis (students) help us improve by rating their learning experience.

After each Jolt, we ask them:

  • Was the Jolt interesting and useful?
  • Did you learn something new?
  • Would you recommend this Jolt to a friend?

Each month, we calculate the average score for all Jolts delivered that month, and publish the results here.

What will next month look like?
Based on the Soji's  input we work with you, our Jolters, on making your talks even better.
