Research-based Results

Why give to the Georgia Council on Economic Education?  When you provide your support to an organization, you want to see results.  You want to have confidence that your contribution will accomplish something positive that will benefit those you want to help.  Giving to GCEE means your contribution will help teachers teach economics and financial literacy to K-12 students in the Peach State so that students are prepared to take their place in a globally interdependent economy they understand better.  Click here to see what your support can do.  

In a study by Dr. John Swinton, Director of the Center for Economic Education at Georgia College and State University, a team of researchers examined approximately 180,000 test scores over three years, measuring the impact of GCEE programming in terms of changes in student test scores on the End-of-Course Test (EOCT).  The researchers found that students of teachers who attended GCEE workshops performed significantly higher statistically on the EOCT than students whose teachers had never attended a GCEE workshop.  Researchers also found that the more workshops teachers attended, the better their students performed on the EOCT.  You can read about the findings here. 


At an October 2011 meeting, GCEE Executive Director Dr. David Martin (right) presents State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge (left) with research findings that show students of teachers who take a GCEE workshop do better on the state-mandated economics End-of-Course Test (EOCT) than students of teachers without the in-service training.
