Abstract

The Exhibition Appraisal Form was developed as part of the project, Museums Actively Researching Visitor Experiences and Learning (MARVEL). The project aims to understand and measure museum learning, with a particular focus on adolescents.

MARVEL is a joint initiative between the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and industry partners the Australian Museum, Sydney; Museum Victoria; the National Museum of Australia, Canberra; and Sovereign Hill Museums Inc, Ballarat. This form was developed and tested by members of the MARVEL Project Team, based on both literature and findings from previous studies that shaped the team’s approach to learning.
