Common Measures Surveys
The National 4-H Common Measures are a set of surveys to assess the impact of 4-H programs in Science, Healthy Living, Civic Engagement, College and Career Readiness, and Universal positive youth development.
4-H youth members are invited to complete the Common Measures surveys every year to share their 4-H experiences. These surveys provide information to better understand youths’ learning experiences in the major 4-H program areas and make meaningful decisions to improve 4-H programming.
Please see the Result Summary reports for the 2019-2020 program year corresponding to each 4-H Program area:
