Attitudes toward school/after school programs

N students = 11
Students respond ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to each of the following:

  • I look forward to school.
  • My parents talk to me about school.
  • I look forward to tutoring.
  • I think I am doing better in school.

The following graph shows the proportion of students responding ‘yes’. Above data indicate that all of the students look forward to school, and report that their parents talk to them about school. Three-quarters of the students look forward to the after school tutoring program and feel they are doing better in school.

End of the School Year

As noted above, a student receives a score of 1 for answering yes to each of the four prompts. The resulting score is called a ‘positive disposition score’ and was distributed as shown in the table below.

N students = 8
The majority of the students report a positive feeling toward school and the after school program.

The students were also asked on what subject they spent most time during the after school program, and as a result, in what subject the felt they most improved.

As the graphs below suggest, the time spent during the after school program seemed to the students to result in improved school achievement in those subjects, with a majority reporting improvement in English/Reading.
