JA Produces Proven Results
The University of Delaware Education Research & Development Center, College of Education & Public Policy, conducted an evaluation of JA BizTown in 2013. This study involved matched pre and post-testing of 1,861 JA BizTown students. Researchers found statistically significant knowledge gains from the start to the end of the program, with pre-test average score of 8.95 and post-test of 13.73. This was followed by a KPMG nationwide study of JA Finance Park which showed that 24% of Delaware students who said they were "unlikely to graduate from a 2-year college" before their JA Finance Park experience changed their response to "LIKELY" while they were at JA Finance Park!
