Dimensions of Success observation tool (DoS)


The Dimensions of Success observation tool, or DoS, defines twelve indicators of STEM program quality in out-of-school time (e.g., afterschool, summer camps, etc.). It was developed and studied with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) by the Program in Education, Afterschool and Resiliency (PEAR), along with partners at Educational Testing Services (ETS) and Project Liftoff. The DoS tool allows researchers, practitioners, funders, and other stakeholders to track the quality of STEM learning opportunities and to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses.
