Fall 2010 Student Assessment Results

In Fall 2010 97% of student responses to ReSET's Student Assessments indicated they enjoyed the classes (The percentage for school year 2009-2010 was 99%).  Yet the percentage of students who disagreed with the statement "Science is boring" declined from 91% last year to 81% in fall of 2010.  Please post a comment if you have any thoughts or insights about these results.

    I don't think you can draw any conclusions from a single 10% drop in students who disagree with the statement "Science is boring." We are dealing with people (kids), and people are bound to show some variation in their opinions from one year to the next. There are so many influences on the kids, all the way from who their teacher was, to how much they liked the weather that semester, that a one-time 10% change can be considered a normal statistical variation, essentially random. If you saw a steady downward trend over an extended period,that would be different.
