The Good Money Challenge is a local competition that focuses on business plans and ideas that have a positive impact on social or environmental issues. Thanks to the Brady Corporation and Marquette University, the Good Money Challenge hands out $25,000 in prize money to help fund some amazing ideas that have the potential to change our community and world for the better.

We developed a survey to measure student’s confidence levels associated with each KEEN Student Outcome (KSO) from the chart on the previous post. The content of the survey is contained in the PDF link here: KEENsurvey
The results of the survey are summarized in the accompanying graph. Notice that the blue bars record the class averages for all students from the survey taken on March 13, 2014 (the 2nd week of class). The red bars record the class averages for the same survey of all students taken on May 13, 2014 (the last week of class). The results are encouraging. IN EVERY OUTCOME MEASURED, STUDENT CONFIDENCE LEVELS ROSE SIGNIFICANTLY. This indicates that it is possible, in one course, to improve all student outcomes on entrepreneurship at once!
