IMPACT MONITORING AND EVALUATION IAWA is assessing how the ambassadors’ mindsets shift in six areas that we have determined are indicators of future success: • • • • • •
goals & aspirations problem solving self-efficacy empathy cooperation & communication self-awareness
These areas are evaluated employing a quantitative and qualitative assessment tool that includes a survey and six long response questions. The survey questions were taken from the 2007/2008 California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS 2007/2008). The survey is comprised of eighteen multiple choice questions, three per target area, that were designed for self-evaluation, using a four response Likert scale of: Not at All True, A Little True, Pretty Much True, Very Much True. The long response questions were developed to gain deeper insight into the quantitative responses. Ambassadors took the assessment at the beginning of the program and at the start of the 2017 programming. Ambassadors will retake the assessment at the start of 2018 and at the end of the program.
