Background about the Instrument
The Afterschool and Summer Program Survey collects information about programs’ engagement with the Moonshot and current practices in informal STEM, including use of transformative practices and efforts to sustain engagement among girls and youth of color.
It is designed to be distributed by Networks to all afterschool and summer programs in their state, enabling the evaluation team to track shifts in programs’ engagement with the Moonshot over time, along with changes in STEM-related practices in afterschool and summer.
The survey is available for distribution beginning in the spring of each year and will close in the summer months.
Public Profit, MGM’s Evaluation Team, coordinates the distribution of the program level survey and creates a distribution guide to support program recruitment.
This survey link will be made available for Year 3 of the initiative in spring 2023
Nothing is required at this time. Survey announcements will be made early 2023 and MGM asks all Networks to actively promote it’s distribution.
