Program Evaluation Support

Every organization needs to know how well their prevention program works and every prevention professional wants to determine what type of positive impact they are having on their participants.  

And because settings and populations differ, even evidence-based prevention programs should be assessed to ensure implementation fidelity and positive outcomes.   

That's why at Prevention Plus Wellness we provide free program evaluation support to assist prevention and health specialists and organizations assess the fidelity and effectiveness of the Prevention Plus Wellness programs they use.

This is critical for two reasons. 

First, it provides invaluable information for promoting your program to other youth, families, communities and funding agencies to sustain and grow your prevention. 

Second, it offers critical insights for improving your program’s effectiveness over time.

We developed Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) programs pre and posttest surveys in both online and paper copy format.  Simply have your participants complete the surveys immediately before and after the PPW program lesson.

We provide free survey results highlighting your participating youth group's post-program performance and pre-post changes upon request. 

We also offer an optional written report interpreting the data and providing recommendations for program improvement for a fee.   

The PPW programs pre and posttest surveys are designed to assess immediate program effects on two measures predictive of future health behavior. 

The first includes behavioral intentions, assessed on a 5-point scale of “very likely” to “very unlikely” and measuring five substances and four health-promoting behaviors including getting regular physical activity, healthy eating, sleep and stress control. 

The second measure assesses perceived harmfulness, scored on a 5-point scale of “strongly agree” to “strongly disagree” and measuring the same five substances of alcohol, tobacco cigarettes, e-cigarettes, marijuana and illicit drugs. 

In addition, the posttest survey includes two qualitative measures designed to inform quantitative results and provide data for both promoting and improving the PPW program.  These measures assess what participants liked the “best” and “least” about the PPW program. 

The online pretest and posttest surveys are listed below.  Contact us to receive customized links for use by your organization exclusively.
