Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our project goal is to increase enthusiasm for involvement in the theater, for students and parents. The tool used for measurement will be an evaluation survey distributed to both parents and students involved in the performance. The survey will ask questions measuring student satisfaction, enthusiasm, and suggestions to improve the experience. A similar survey for the parents will ask the same questions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The results of the survey showed that the students felt very happy with their experience and most indicated that they would participate again in the future. All but two students said that they learned something new by being in the production.
