We are often asked for samples of questionnaires and evaluations for information outreach projects. This peer tutor project from the Texas Rio Grande Valley has posted a number of sample evaluation documents that can be modified for other information outreach projects
The ¡VIVA! (Vital Information for a Virtual Age) Project is a high school-based health information outreach initiative in which high school students (peer tutors) from the South Texas Independent School District are trained to use and promote MedlinePlus, a consumer-health database of the NIH National Library of Medicine. Since 2001, these teen peer tutors have taught others about MedlinePlus through class demonstrations, student orientations, school open houses, and community events.
Evaluation has been a strong component of this program since its inception. As part of an online Implementation Guide , the ¡VIVA! Peer Tutor Project team posted many sample evaluation forms and documents. These can be modified to fit your own outreach evaluation needs. Here are some examples:
Logic Model and Evaluation Plan: Here is a sample of how to tie a logic model to the project’s evaluation plan based on outcomes.
Interview guides: It can take a long time to form the perfect questions for interviewing individuals or focus groups. See if these questions will work, and if not, see if you can adjust them.
Training Assessments: Here are some basic questionnaires designed to find out what students have learned and how they would rate their training session.
Feel free to use these shortcuts to make evaluation fit more easily into your workflow! If you have any questions about the program or the evaluation forms, feel free to contact Cynthia Olney.
