The Howmuch-ometer: a Self Report Tool for Early Learners

The Howmuch-ometer is a simple, visually engaging tool to measure how confident young children are about their capacity to learn along three different dimensions directly linked to school performance: reading, getting along with others, and controlling personal behavior.

It’s a thermometer-like device through which young learners mark their own perception of self-confidence — one of the only such tools developed  directly for use by young children, rather than by parents or teachers. The purpose of this tool is to measure growth over time.

 

 

Bouncy’s Howmuch-ometer comes with a built-in Data Manager to track progress over time. Be sure to share results with young learners so they can see how they change and grow over time, similar to how you use physical growth charts to mark changes in height.
