For public health practitioners and researchers conducting healthy weight programs, program evaluation is a fundamental component. To make it easier to assess the impact of programs and therefore improve program effectiveness and sustainability, NCCOR developed A Toolkit for Evaluating Childhood Healthy Weight Programs (CHWPs) to provide researchers and practitioners resources to evaluate CHWPs.
The toolkit offers an overview of program evaluation and provides guidance on evaluation readiness, process measures, outcome measures, contextual factors, program sustainability, and remote evaluation of CHWPs. In addition, the toolkit features a resource library, with links to guides, databases, research articles and other toolkits that will support your evaluation plan.
