Over the past three years we have administered the exact same Digital Citizenship pre and post test to our second and fifth graders in the district. Below are the results over the years:
Second Grade Results:
|Second Grade||16 17 pretest average||16 17 post average||Second Grade||17 18 pretest average||17 18 post average||Second Grade||18 19 pretest average||18 19 post average|
|All Schools||59.98%||75.49%||All Schools||64.22%||77.29%||All Schools||65.99%||78.01%|
As you can see our overall district scores in second grade have improved over the three years from the pre to the post. However, in 16-17 our growth was 15.51%, 18-19 was 13.07% and 18-19 was 12.02%, which slightly declined over the years. But if we look at the pre test scores, the students came in higher each year – 16-17 at 59.98%, 17-18 at 64.22% (+4.24) and 18-19 at 65.99% (+1.77). In looking at specific questions for the second graders, three questions from the category of cyber-bullying consistently scored high, with a second grade district average of 97.26%, 97.29% and 96.46%
Fifth Grade Results:
|Fifth Grade||16 17 pretest average||16 17 post average||Fifth Grade||17 18 pretest average||17 18 post average||Fifth Grade||18 19 pretest average||18 19 post average|
|All Schools||75.58%||83.29%||All Schools||79.27%||83.60%||All Schools||80.83%||86.19%|
Fifth grade scores have increased too over the years for their pre and post data. Similar to our second grade data, it showed that students increased by 7.71% in 16-17 for their pre to post, 4.33% in 17-18 and 18-19 5.36%. When we looked at specific questions, the fifth graders like their counterparts in 2nd grade, consistently scored high in the category of cyber-bullying too. The district fifth grade average for the three questions were: 98.22%, 97.75% and 98.45%.
With cyber bullying being in the forefront of the digital age, it is reassuring to know that our students are aware of what it is, what it feels like, and what to do if it happens to them. Should you have any questions about the data above, please let us know.
