Measuring Youth Program Quality: A Guide to Assessment Tools (New)
Nicole Yohalem and Alicia Wilson-Ahlstrom with Sean Fischer and Marybeth Shinn
Quality assessment tools for afterschool programs are important for policymakers wanting to make sure funds are allocated to programs likely to have an impact and succeed. Assessment tools are also important at the practice level because they help practitioners mark what effective practices look like and allow them to assess and improve on their programs. This guide was designed to compare the purpose, structure, content, and technical properties of several youth program quality assessment tools. This resource provides useful guidance to practitioners, policymakers, researchers, and evaluators on what tools are available and under what conditions they would be most appropriate. (83 pages)
