Quantitative Fragebogenerhebung (schriftlich/offline)
Brathay embarked on a one year pilot project of using the Catalyst Outcomes Framework. The methodology involved as many of the 5000 young participants as possible in self-assessing their abilities. Rather than using a psychometric test, the study authors used self-assessment as they wanted the process to be useful, rather than intimidating, for the young people and because they wanted the assessment to be flexible to the outcomes of each programme. What this meant was that practitioners and young people would select five or six outcomes from the Catalyst Outcome Framework for their programme. They would discuss the outcomes and then the young people would assess themselves against each of the outcomes on a six point Likert scale.
