EVALUATING YOUR TEEN SCIENCE CAFÉ
In past years, we have conducted teen surveys at the end of the cafe season at many of our sites. The results from doing this in the first two years pretty much confirmed that you were getting the same kinds of impacts that we had in our project in NM from 2008-2011. We are not going to do that survey again on a national scale with our national evaluators.
As always, you are free to do any type of evaluation you wish locally. And you are free to use the instruments that we have used in the past for the teen surveys or any other survey.
If you do conduct evaluation, we would appreciate if you shared the results and the instrument with the network so that we can all learn more about the impact of teen café activities and continue to improve our instruments. The 2014_TSCN_TeenSurvey_FINAL.pdf
can be found in our Resources area. The Teen Leader Focus Group Report
is also available in the Resources area.
