Measuring our impact

We are passionate about robustly measuring the impact Element projects have. As part of the Project Oracle Arts Cohort we have reached Validated Standard 1 of Evidence. Our evaluation plan incorporates a combination of quantitative and qualitative data, specifically to measure:

+

ATTITUDE TO CREATIVITY

We have developed Element-specific questions to track whether our participants recognise themselves as creative individuals with creative skills before and after a project.

+

SELF CONFIDENCE AND SELF EXPRESSION

We use a before and after questionnaire comprising questions from the JET framework, the Warwick Edinburgh Mental Wellbeing scale and questions developed specifically for Element to track participants' confidence and ability to express their unique identity.

+

PERCEPTIONS OF PROJECT

We collect post project feedback from our participants to ensure that our content is as relevant, useful and enjoyable as possible.

+

FURTHER OPPORTUNITIES

After a project we monitor which participants have been connected to an opportunity through the Element network.

It was helpful to have something to do in the evenings and I had more energy and started thinking about lots of different things.

It opened my eyes to a completely new way of thinking and feeling in a positive way.

It’s been awesome to be part of a group and it’s been awesome making new friends, I just wanted to say that I feel like I’ve got a little stronger, since this project and generally, it’s helped me express myself and I’ve really enjoyed it. Thank you for everything and being really understanding and helping me it has meant a lot to me!
