Cornell Lab of Ornithology Survey Request


The American Association of Variable Star Observers has been working with
the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to improve evaluation of citizen science
projects. In particular, they are seeking to develop better measures for
gauging participant learning. Understanding how participants benefit from
their engagement with citizen science will help project leaders improve
their projects, and also help them attain funding to keep their programs
up and running.
