SciGirls CONNECT 2 Front End Evaluation Report

August 1st, 2017 | EVALUATION

The independent evaluators at Knight Williams Inc. developed a front-end survey to gather background and baseline information about the 16 partner organizations selected to conduct outreach programs as part of SciGirls CONNECT2. The goal was for two people from each partner organization to complete the online survey about their background and prior use of the SciGirls Seven and related strategies. A total of 30 partner representatives completed the survey by the requested deadline, resulting in a response rate of 94%. The majority identified as program leaders, with smaller groups saying they were educators or describing other roles. They reported varying years of experience at their respective organizations. All but two had previously used the SciGirls Seven. Key findings that emerged from the front-end evaluation are in the attached report.
