Evaluator’s Statement
 
This document serves as the final evaluation report for the
National 4-H Science Academy: Year Three E-Academy Needs Assessment 
sponsored by National 4-H Council with funding from theNoyce Foundation. The academies were held in five locations across four regions of the countrybetween January and April, 2012. All academy participants were invited to participate in theprogram evaluation.All data for the evaluation were entered by participants directly into an on-line data collectionsystem. Access to the system was provided by the evaluator to the participants for data entry,but only the evaluator and her research assistants had access to the actual dataset. Theintegrity and accuracy of the raw data rests with the individual participants. The integrity andaccuracy of the analysis and interpretation rests solely with me as the project evaluator. To thisend, I certify that the analysis and results presented in this document are complete andaccurate insofar as the data entered by the participants were as well. Any questions orconcerns about this report should be addressed to me.Mary E. Arnold, Ph.D.Project Evaluator, Oregon State UniversitySeptember 30, 2012mary.arnold@oregonstate.edu
