Attitudes toward school/after school programs

Teachers and volunteers supervising the after school programs were asked to complete a survey about the attitudes of the students who attended in the Fall 05 semester.

Teachers/volunteers were asked to respond "yes" or "no" to each of the following about each student:

  • Has a positive attitude toward school.
  • Has a positive attitude toward the after school program.
  • Has improved in attending the program.
  • Has improved in being attentive at the program.
  • Has improved in getting along well with others.

A total of 21 students were reported upon.
The graph below shows the percentage of students about whom teachers responded ‘yes’ to each of these five statements. The most noticeable aspect of the data is the strong report on students who improved in getting along with each other and had positive attitudes toward school and the program at the Chicago Heights center.

A ‘positive disposition’ score is obtained by assigning a score of 1 to each of the five statements about each student. The following table shows the resulting distribution:

The graph below shows the distribution of the positive disposition scores. Generally, the students are positively disposed toward school and the after school program, as suggested by the predominance of scores of 5. There are, however, scores across the range from 0 to 4 as well, suggesting some students with dispositions less than entirely positive.
