Abstract: This poster discusses a specific methodology for assessing astronomy informal education and outreach activities based on a 10-item questionnaire where questions are accompanied by four possible responses: “I know the answer,” “I want to know the answer,” “I know the answer but I want to know more,” and “I’m not interested in this question.” Data is provided for the successes and limitations of this assessment technique.
