Measuring improvements in focus, thinking, learning and feelings

How ENHANCE led to a 47% improvement in self efficacy for a cohort of Grade 11 students

When something promises to do various things it’s often difficult to understand the primary benefit. ENHANCE is such a thing and we have tried to distil its multiple benefits into the following summary:

Focus Longer > Think Quicker > Learn Faster > Feel Better

Self-efficacy is an individual’s belief in their capacity to act in the ways necessary to reach specific goals. The concept was originally proposed by the psychologist Albert Bandura and it affects every area of human endeavour.
