Data Metrics on Fitness and Character Education

FACE4Kids® Data Metrics

Teacher Pre and Post Survey

Each School had a counselor that was committed to and supportive of the FACE program being implemented within their Duval County Public School. Also, started in Chester County PA in 2012*. The Teachers had to fill out a PRE Survey for each student attending the youth leadership program. There are 5 Main categories with Metrics summarized on the students since 2015-2016. Each category has two tasks being valued with a numeric score, with the values added per student. The Values represent a Summary of averages per school per category. After the FACE graduation occurs at each school, the contact counselor is asked to gather the same information for a POST survey with regard to each student completing and graduating from the program.
While the qualitative data has been impressive, this year, we were focused on our quantitative data collection. Both teachers and students have completed rating scales which will gave us pre and post scores in Fitness, Confidence, School Effort, Social Skills and Behavior Choices. We confirmed that this additional data collection continues to validate the impact of the FACE program – as EVERY school improved in all 5 categories. The Total Summary Averages are in graph and details found in FACE4Kids METRICS SUMMARY [PDF] for view.

Pre Survey Metric Details were completed by teachers on scoring 0-10, with two topics per category. The SUMMARY is the average score of students per school for the specific category. A POST survey will be completed after the graduation, and differences will be noted to analyze the change in the students behavior, attitude, confidence, etc.

Students also filled out their own survey with scoring values and writing their own responses to phrase ‘I want to improve in:” The focus is on the Teacher Metrics, as the numbers between PRE survey and POST survey can best represent the progression of student per his/her classroom teacher.
