This was one of the best workshops that I have had my students attend.  They were engaged, emotionally invested, and we have been discussing the experience for the rest of this semester.  I hope that the group is able to offer this experience again for students.  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Excellent findings, Olga! I love your use of pre and post test to assess learning. These percentages certainly look like they increase significantly! What a great way to not only teach students about intersectionality but to also engage your club members in educating others.

Clearly a well designed workshop, and the post-test results show a large increase in the understanding of the key topic. But what I love most is that it was run by students for students. Well done!

Thank you for sharing the results.   I hope to see more clubs begin to use CATS to document what works and what doesn't.  Thank you!

I think this helps address one of the minor concerns HLC had with CATS.  Many CATS show great gains in "test scores."  However, the learning outcomes are sometime not mentioned. By showing your three learning outcomes, you can specifically identify which learning outcomes demonstrated the most gain as  well as the level of knowledge of students already had attained prior to the workshop.

This isn't just about the faculty this is about EMCC at all levels of engagement and I think it is great that more on campus activities are being shared with everyone through CATS.

Olga keep up the good work and thank you for modeling the way in assessing student activities.
