Go Figure! Summative Evaluation

April 1st, 2001 | EVALUATION

This report presents findings from a summative evaluation of Go Figure! conducted by Randi Korn & Associates, Inc. (RK&A) for the Minnesota Children's Museum (MCM). Go Figure! is a traveling exhibition that is visiting both libraries and children's museums across the country. The exhibition was developed by the Minnesota Children's Museum in collaboration with the American Library Association through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and is intended to engage children two through seven years and their parents in exploring math through hands-on, book-based math activities. The evaluation was undertaken to document the impact and effectiveness of Go Figure!. For comparison sake, families' experiences in Go Figure! were examined against those of families in another MCM exhibition, Earth World. To achieve the specific objectives of the evaluation, three data collection strategies were employed: observations, standardized questionnaires, and interviews.
