Bloom Teacher/Volunteer Survey of Students in After School Program

For the Bloom teacher/volunteer survey of students, the table below gives the number of students responding, by semester.

Bloom HS Frequency
Fall 2008 128
Spring 2009 139

Teacher was asked, Has this student..

YesNo
Had a positive attitude toward school/after school program?
Improved in coming to after school program ready/prepared to learn?
Improved in being attentive?
Improved in getting along well with other students?

Each student is assigned a score of 1 for yes, and 0 for no, for each of the four aspects of attitude. The chart below shows the proportion of Yes scores for Fall 2008 and Spring 2009.

The data indicate a slight decrease from Fall 2008 to Spring 2009 in teacher ratings of student attitudes. One noteworthy finding is perhaps the stable ratings of students improved in being attentive and in getting along well with others.

It was also possible to obtain a "positive disposition" score for each student. That is, a student obtaining a positive disposition score of 4 received yes ratings from teacher on all four categories.

The charts below summarize the positive disposition scores for the students in Fall 2008 and Spring 2009. The graph documents somewhat of an improvement in student positive disposition from fall to spring.

Teacher/volunteers were also asked to report the subject on which each student spent most time during the after school program. As the chart below shows, mathematics was reported to be "winner" in both semesters.
