Student Assessment Data

Students from selected classrooms at 3 or 4 grade levels each year are directly assessed to measure knowledge, empathy, and critical thinking in relation to the workshop topic. Research demonstrates that these 3 elements are key to achieving intermediate goals of improved intergroup relations and long-term reduction in prejudice. Multiple choice questions measure knowledge and 2 essays assess empathy and critical thinking. Goal = 80%

 

Grade 4 Knowledge Questions: 81% correct

Grade 4 Essays: 93% scored positive for empathy and critical thinking

 

Grade 6 Knowledge Questions: 84% correct

Grade 6 Essays: 74% scored positive for empathy and critical thinking

Qualitative analysis of the essays also provides some good evidence that we are meeting intermediate outcomes.
