Thank you for taking part in this project funded by the National Science Foundation. We are working to understand how to use GIS in elementary school classrooms. Teachers at Lane Community College have been working with your teacher to develop lessons and activities that will introduce geospatial technology.
To develop really good lessons, we need to see what you know already and later on, how much you have learned after using GIS. You will take a pre-test now and later you will take a post-test. Your teacher will not get the scores and will only know in general how each class did. Participation is voluntary. Thank you for your help.
NSF Grant #0903330

Acknowledgments: Many components of this test were developed by Dr. Jongwon Lee and further refined as part of the AAG’s "Teacher’s Guide to Modern Geography project."
