The Hope Survey Logic Model

Little attention has been paid to the ability of schools to encourage positive non-academic outcomes such as self-efficacy, optimism, and problem solving ability which all impact traditional academic achievement and influence success and quality of life outside of school.

The Hope Logic Model addresses these concerns with the use of the Hope Survey which measures autonomy, belongingness, mastery goal orientation and academic press which lead to engagement and hope. Hope is measured with the Hope Index, an assessment of generalized expectancy for achieving goals which contains two components; motivation for pursuing goals and ability to identify workable routes to goal attainment. The Hope Survey results can lead to continuous school improvement to create a school climate utilizing the Hope Logic Model leading to greater engagement, higher achievement and higher hope in students.

  • The first step to implementing the Hope Logic Model is to begin use of the Hope Survey which in year one is to all students in the fall to obtain baseline data. Then in subsequent years current students complete the Hope Survey each spring. Newly enrolled students would complete the Hope Survey upon admission to the school and
  • The second step consists of analysis and interpretation of data. Once the data is collected, analyzed and interpreted schools receive an explanation of the data in the form of a report. This step also includes an on-site or phone conference to answer questions, give clarification to the data report and assist school staff with goal planning for the following school year.
  • Step three includes a second year of data collection to obtain longitudinal data. Again, this is completion of the Hope Survey by new students in the fall (or at time of enrollment) and all current students in the spring.
  • The final step consists of analysis and interpretation of data receipt of the data report and an on-site or phone conference, give clarification to the data report and assist school staff with creating a school improvement plan. At any point during schools can request staff development, and or school improvement planning.

Results of creating a culture that support hope provides an indication of how a learning environment affects adolescents and have been shown to correlate positively with success in college, physical health, and self-actualization. With The Hope Survey, schools can build a strong data driven decision making model which ties together relationships, relevance, and rigor through continuous school improvement.
