Inspire Aspire Research Findings

Written by  Tuesday, 02 February 2016 10:45

During January, lead researchers from Montclair State University visited Character Scotland to present their findings from the mixed-methods evaluation pilot of Inspire Aspire with 5 Scottish schools.

 

The quantitative findings from pupil survey data revealed very little change in outcome scores between Time 1 and Time 2, whilst in contrast, the qualitative findings revealed that students overall demonstrated understanding and development of values and virtues, as well as a sense of purpose. 

 

For background information and findings derived from the pilot research project, please refer to the following document:

Following on from the pilot, we are looking for 30 Scottish schools to take part in research answering: "How do we inspire purpose in Young People?". If your school is interested in participating in this ground-breaking research during the next school year, please get in touch with Sarah Virgo.
