The Census in Schools program promotes data literacy and increases awareness of Census Bureau products and activities by providing educators with teaching tools, resource materials, workshops, and other professional development opportunities. In addition to targeting teachers, the Census Bureau’s Public Information Office (PIO) is expanding the current Web site to include online activities for students in grades K-12. Specific to this round of testing, PIO has tested web content customized for grades K-6 .
Before the site is officially released to the general public, the Census in Schools design team contacted members of the Usability lab, and these two groups created a team to look into usability issues. The Usability Team consisted of the following members: Michelle Rusch (lead), Benjamin Smith, Erica Olmsted-Hawala, and Betty Murphy (SRD), Victoria Glasier and Schere Johnson Jordan (PIO), Kimberly Crews (MSO), and Carollyn Hammersmith (SSD).
