TeamMastermind Northern Arizona University Research Results

After many years of positive anecdotal evidence of the success of the TeamMastermind Curriculum, we implemented a program evaluation during the 2007-2008 academic year. This first evaluation revealed significant improvements in critical thinking & teamwork skills. Results from 2007-2008 evaluation used to strengthen the curriculum and another evaluation was performed in 2008-2009 to determine whether the educational goals of TeamMastermind® were met. The goals included increasing student skills in cognitive challenge, collaborative learning, and metacognitive awareness. A sample of 150 4th grade students who completed TeamMastermind® curriculum once a week during the 2008-2009 academic year displayed significant increases in student cognitive challenge skills (e.g., critical thinking, problem-solving collaborative learning, and meta cognition).
