Unit D, Development and Evaluation Unit:
This unit will evaluate the products of each unit and will conduct research on "Cross-Cultural Research on the Sense of Happiness."

Our unit has two major objectives. First, we will create comprehensive methods to evaluate the suggestions and conclusions from other units (Unit A, B, and C) on what constitutes revitalizing education for dynamic hearts and minds. Second, by implementing thorough international comparative studies on happiness with international researchers from the U.S., the Great Britain, Germany, Spain, China, and New Zealand, we plan to clarify the relationships between what constitutes universal happiness and what constitutes happiness unique to each culture. Our survey will build evaluation compositions that enable clarification of the relationships among a sense of capability, a vital sense of life, a sense of accomplishment (achievement), and a sense of happiness. We will also conduct analyses using structural equation modeling and others.
