Project: Evaluate the Street Finance program in high schools
Street Finance is a final-year subject in the Bachelor of Commerce at the University. Commerce students are trained in aspects of financial literacy and education. They then develop and deliver three lessons on financial literacy for year 10 high school students.
The project will develop a framework for the evaluation of financial literacy, financial behaviour and outcomes in adolescents and young adults in Australia.
A randomised controlled trial will be conducted to evaluate how the Street Finance program influences the financial behaviour and outcomes of the high school students. The project will also look at how the exercise affects the financial behaviour and outcomes of the participating university students.
The evaluation framework and the results of the evaluation will be publicly available.
