Primary Outcomes (end points)
1. General Behavioral traits: The program’s main aim is to go beyond standard academic
education, seeking to trigger various behavioral changes among students. This
study focuses primarily on evaluating behavioral traits that are generally associated
with success in the labor market: such as aspirations, creativity, collaborative skills,
and internal locus of control. Additionally, we are examining broader traits like the
Big Five personality traits (agreeableness, conscientiousness, extraversion, neuroticism,
and openness), which have relevance in a wider context beyond entrepreneurship.
These behavioral traits are our main outcomes, and their scales are provided
in the appendix. These traits include Aspirations (academic); Locus of Control (Internal
and External); Collaboration (Relationship and Team work); Agency (relating
to education, personal and career); and Goal Setting.
2. Enterprenuerial Behavior: General traits as discussed above are equally important for
an entrepreneurial mindset but additional traits commonly observed in entrepreneurs
are also important. For example, entrepreneurs are often recognized for their risk-taking
nature, their self-perceived ability, and aspirations to start a business. Within
the entrepreneurial behavioral traits, we encompass a collection of five specific outcomes
closely linked to entrepreneurs. These include Business Aspirations; Self-
Perceived Business Ability; Business Mathematics Skills; Risk-Taking; and Patience.
While the former three are evaluated through survey questions, the latter two are assessed
using experimental games. These five traits are pivotal indicators associated
with a business-oriented mindset, collectively categorized as our primary outcomes.
