Data Collection

Data Collection (100 points)

  • NOTE: This section is ONLY for reporting how your students get to work on a NON-EVENT day (i.e. a "regular day with no special events happening").  If you want to report any other activities (like a Bike to School Day, a Walking Wednesday, etc), go here: 
  • We want to know if your students' travel behavior has changed over time! 
  • Capture data on all the different ways your school community gets to and/or from school in the Fall, and again in the Spring, to help identify any transportation behavior changes in your school.
  • Data collection needs to be performed during a regular (non-event) week at school. Count how students and staff travel to (or from) school for 2-3 days near the time you first sign up for Way to Go!, and again for 2-3 days of similar weather when the challenge is wrapping up.
  • You will receive 50 points for your first collection and your remaining 50 points for your last collection.  
  • Note: This is a great way to engage volunteers and students!
