Part of the Studies in Systems, Decision and Control book series (SSDC,volume 407)

Abstract

Educational interventions are intended to help struggling students by addressing their behavioral issues and social skills. An evaluation framework has been designed to monitor and evaluate the educational intervention program implemented by the Keep Moving Movement (KMM), a Non-profit and Non-Government Organisation. The digitalization of responses is done using FormScanner by developing a software as technical support which has facilitated quick data entry with reduced errors. This paper presents the complete life cycle of the intervention process implemented by the Keep Moving Movement as a pilot study. The impact of the KMM program is analyzed using correlation analysis, factor analysis, and paired t-test. The group wise and student wise analysis of students reveals significant positive changes in positive thinking and willingness. Positive change is also observed in students’ confidence, but it is not statistically significant. The findings suggest that the KMM program can be implemented to a larger set of students to improve their positive thinking and willingness, confidence qualities.
