Look Forward Trail - Homework Look Forward Trail - Snacks Look Forward Trail - RecrEnrich Look Forward Trail - Friends Comments:
  • Students responded to a five point attitude scale, 0 to 4. A score of 2 means undecided.
  • Generally, students agree that the four reasons for looking forward to Pop-In (Help with homework/tutoring, snacks, recreation and meeting with friends) are important to them.
  • Help with homework is somewhat less agreed to as a reason for participation than are the other aspects of the program. However, responses to the open-ended question as to why they joined Pop-In often include reference to the opportunity to either get help with homework or have time to do homework.
  • Recreation seems to be a favorite aspect of the program. But ‘hanging out with friends’ and snacks are also viewed with favor. (Note that the software has changed the vertical scale somewhat for ‘snacks’.)
