HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN EVALUATION QUESTIONS
Think about your theory of change and identify key learning objectives/outcomes for your social justice and tech outcomes
Create items that attempt to measure each of the objectives/outcomes you identified. BE SPECIFIC (ex. “I am confident in my ability to use tech to solve my problems” vs “I am confident in my ability to use tech”)
Think about your items. Are they worded properly for your audience? Are you capturing ALL aspects of what you’re trying to measure?
