Assessment

Sample Learning Outcomes

Whether you are a leader planning a group activity, a supervisor hoping to develop your team, or an organization's event planner organizing an engaging and informative event, you want to make sure your participants walk away with tangible learning that will impact your team. In addition to general feedback, the sessions have direct assessment built in to demonstrate effectiveness. Take a look!

EmpoweredSelf & Teams

Through active participation in a half-day EI workshop, participants will be able to:

  • articulate the four areas of emotional intelligence

  • articulate areas of growth, based on the individual's personalized EQ assessment (either quick, free version or the MEIQ), and create a plan that includes 3 tangible techniques to address the opportunity.

  • craft positive affirmations to combat negative failure messages.

  • identify possible emotional responses of others (empathy) and describe methods to regulate one's behavior to impact others positively.

In addition to the SLOs above, through active participation in a full-day EI workshop, participants will be able to:

  • identify their casual conflict management style and describe opportunities to modify their behavior to have a more positive impact on others in relation to conflict.

  • apply activities implemented during the workshop to other settings and create a lesson plan for implementation that includes directions, active engagement, and thorough de-briefing dialogue with others (i.e. Train the Trainer).

To assess these learning outcomes, the facilitators gathers answers to various prompts in the workshop. At your request, data can be gathered in writing and evaluated via rubric, with results reported directly to the organizer. In addition, workshops that include the personalized MEIQ assessment are analyzed with indirect assessment to evaluate statistically significant improvements from participants. Typical results of the MEIQ and Survey relationship assessment demonstrates participants who enter the workshop with the lowest levels of EQ self-report gaining the most from the workshop.

EmpoweredSelf: Developing An Emotionally Intelligent You

Through active participation in an EmpoweredSelf course series, participants will be able to:

  • articulate the four areas of emotional intelligence

  • articulate the human values and 5-6 methods to prioritize positive and productive internal messages.

  • identify possible emotional responses of others (empathy) and describe methods to regulate one's behavior to impact others positively.

  • describe 2-3 methods to reduce intense and unproductive emotions and create productive action plans.

Participants create a personalized reflection assignment at the conclusion of the workshop series which includes prompts for defining key terms. The series also includes a workbook with multiple activities that can be collected and analyzed. Typically, we incorporate a pre/post test using the RYFF and CCAPS, which demonstrates participants have a lower level of anxiety and depression, and higher ability to manage their environment and handle stress.

DearAlly: A SafeSpace/Brave SpaceTraining

Through active participation in the DearAlly workshop, participants will be able to:

  • demonstrate an understanding of the definitions and differences between sex, gender identity, gender expression, orientation, and sexual behaviors ("Identity Components").

  • privately self identify their placement on the identity component continuum. 

  • identify the stages of the Cass Model of Identity Development.

  • articulate the unique needs of the LGBTQ+ community juxtaposed to national trends and needs.

  • articulate and practice positive and inclusive communication skills.

  • describe the organization's climate for LGBTQ+ participants and commit to one aspect of positive support they can enact to have a positive influence on the climate.

Participants answer prompts throughout the workshop which can also be submitted in writing and evaluated. Participants also respond to scenarios which checks for (1) adequate understanding of terms within the scenarios and (2) affirming language and behaviors that promote inclusivity.
