Evaluating Short-Term Impacts on Student Achievement: What Does Student Motivation and Reflection Tell Us?


This presentation focuses on the use of student motivation and reflection as indicators of short-term MSP program impact. With evidence and data from the RITES evaluation study the presentation will share; (1) the challenges of informing stakeholders of the research on student motivation and reflection and the importance of these outcomes as a means to student achievement, (2) the statistical success of adapting student motivation surveys from the literature to a particular content (i.e., science) and the qualitative successes of analyzing student reflections, (3) the process at which teachers easily integrated the student survey and reflection with the school day, and (4) the interpretation and dissemination of evaluation findings on students' motivation and reflection to inform MSP program decisions.
