ABSTRACT
The article discusses the outcome assessment confirmation study on graduate school, professional and life choices by measuring positive student outcomes beyond student experiences for participants in competitive intercollegiate forensics. The participation in intercollegiate forensics is an educational opportunity which teaches skills in educational and societal implications. It highlights two studies that provides quantitative support for the conclusion that participation in intercollegiate forensics is correlated with educational and behavioral outcomes in comparison with outcomes for non-debate students.
