Abstract

Health has been shown to influence academic performance and self-regulation can have a positive influence on learning and health. This study investigated student usability and teacher feasibility of the Scholar Checklist tool for early childhood education and health. This study was a two-phased study, at a Division 1 university child development center. The study developed and tested the Scholar Checklist (SC) education tool with students and teachers. Phase one focused on student usability and phase two focused on teacher feasibility. Observations over multiple days by teachers and researchers collected baseline data. Teachers and researchers then collected and analyzed data about its usability and feasibility. Researcher observations, teacher perceptions, and teacher feedback suggested promising student usability and teacher feasibility of the Scholar Checklist in the education process.
