Members of CYFS’ Nebraska Academy for Methodology, Analytics and Psychometrics will collaborate with the National 4-H Council to contribute to ongoing development and implementation of the Common Measures instruments. National 4-H Common Measures instruments are designed to assess the impacts of 4-H programs in science, healthy living, citizenship, college/career readiness and universal positive youth development.
CYFS researchers will collaborate with 4-H representatives from 10 pilot states to provide training and maintenance for implementation of the Common Measures in conjunction with other activities aimed at enhancing data driven decision-making. As part of the project, researchers will conduct in-depth case studies of three of the states and create an online learning module on data driven decision making that will be housed on the web platform, eXtension.
