Educational Equity Services

SSSP, CAMP & Upward Bound

Student Learning Outcome
After completing the Financial Literacy 101 modules, 90% of participants will indicate increased self-efficacy related to personal finance goals and financial self-assessment.
Measurement Tool

Mandatory pre- and post- Student Self-Assessment surveys within the Financial Literacy 101 (FL101) modules which measure financial attitudes, personal economic tendencies, budgeting and self-efficacy

The pre-survey consists of 17 questions; the post-survey consists of 5-12 questions, depending on the module level.

Participants must score at least 70% on the built-in quiz to complete the module levels and submit the post-survey.

Relevant Framework

Knowledge Acquisition and Application- Connecting knowledge to other knowledge, ideas and experiences

Relevance is key to integration. FL101 analyzes each student’s financial behavior and gives personalized recommendations based on their pre- self-assessment survey. Students have continued access to the information in over 30 modules covering 60+ topics after completing the initial module.

Practical Competence- Pursuing goals, managing personal affairs, and maintaining health and wellness

Financial stresses and lack of personal financial awareness have significant impacts on students now and influence their futures. Every student completes a personal budget and sets financial goals within FL101, and again, they have access to these tools 24/7.

*Note- we do not have access to their personal budgets and goals data unless students choose to share.
