JASON Star Schools Project Administration
2001 to 2003

In 2000, CCT began conducting a longitudinal study of the impact of the JASON Multimedia Science curriculum on teachers and students (see JASON Multimedia Science Curriculum Multi-Year Evaluation). The Jason Project provides a diverse population of students and teachers with opportunities to learn about earth systems, life on earth, and technologies used to study the earth-space system. JASON uses a multimedia model for the curriculum's delivery that focuses on scientists doing science in the context of a research expedition, relates science to other subject domains, and provides for interactive learning.

In addition to its own evaluation, CCT was asked by the JASON Foundation to administer the grant reporting for the Star School-funded JASON Next Generation project. Next Generation encompassed three separate but related programs as well as their respective evaluations: the JASON Academy project and its SRI evaluation research, the JASON Beyond School project and its internal evaluation program, and the JASON Multimedia Science Curriculum and CCT's longitudinal evaluation. At the conclusion of each year, CCT combined the research output of each study into a unified report.
