Educational components of the institute are evaluated by all participants. In addition to weekly and end-of-program evaluation, participants were included in an on-going annual survey to track VSU STI graduates.
In 2012, a survey was performed for graduates covering the past four years. The survey was designed to measure the objectives of the VSU STI. Of the eighteen students who responded, three had finished high school and two of the three are in transportation related fields. Of the fifteen participants still in high school, eight are planning to be involved in a transportation related field. A participants survey will be send out again this summer of 2015.
