After investigating the validity of the questionnaires by experts, the reliability of them was measured via Cronbach’s Alpha method and then they were filled by 244 students and staff at school prior to and following the installation of the stands. Comparing the results of pre and post-tests supports the educational efficacy of the environmental graphic media and a significant change was observed in the information of the students, meaning that the information and knowledge of the students has increased up to 40%.
