NCCOR’s newest resource: A Toolkit for Evaluating Childhood Healthy Weight Programs

To make it easier to assess the impact of programs and therefore improve program effectiveness and sustainability, National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) developed A Toolkit for Evaluating Childhood Healthy Weight Programs to help researchers and practitioners conduct program evaluations. Program evaluation is a fundamental component of any intervention to improve health, especially for childhood healthy weight programs (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.
