4-H Common Measures/Qualtrics Tool – Measuring Impact
Wed May 7, 2014: 1:00 pm-2:00 pm EDT
Over 20 years ago NIFA/4-H Extension and the Military developed a partnership to enhance military children’s opportunities for engagement in quality 4-H youth development programs on and off installations. In 2013, a group of Extension professionals and evaluators created a research-based 4-H Military Connected Youth Logic Model (reviewed by DoD and military service branches, and National Guard) to provide guidance when working with military-connected youth in Extension 4-H programs. The model can be used as a:
- planning tool
- guide for the use of the 4-H Common Measures
- to assist in articulating and reporting the work with military-connected youth.
The challenge for broad educational programs like 4-H is how to assess the impact of programs in which the content and delivery methods vary, but the overall goals are the same. In assessing the collective impact of national/local programs, evaluation tools must possess common elements and be compatible in their measurement of a variety of outcomes. 4-H Common Measures has identified assessment instruments across various community programs to evaluate the overall impact and effectiveness of similar community programs. Common evaluation measurements assist in cross-program comparison but allow for various programs to be examined on similar outcomes and outputs.
Qualtrics is the chosen software program that will be utilized in states to collect that Common Measures Data. Please join this online opportunity to identify how 4-H Common Measures can assist in documenting the impact of programming and to get an overview of Qualtrics and its use.
