Use of a Randomized, Categorized Exam to Determine Horse Knowledge of 4-H Horse Show Participants
The study focused on using a general knowledge exam to determine strengths and weaknesses of 4-H youth in six New England states competing at the Eastern States Exposition 4-H Horse Show. One hundred multiple-choice questions were divided into 10 categories with 10 questiJenniferons per category. Questions were then randomized. Information regarding age, gender, discipline, and years of attendance were collected and had some effect on mean exam scores. The mean score results in each category provided feedback on strengths and weaknesses of each state's 4-H youth. This method may offer a way to track progress over time of 4-H youth.
