Measuring Youth Program Quality: A Guide to Assessment Tools, 2nd Edition

Program quality assessment and improvement continue to be central themes in the after-school and youth development fields. In March 2007 we released the first edition of this report comparing the purpose, history, structure, methodology, content and technical properties of different program observation tools. In this second edition, we added an instrument and updated technical and practical information about many of the tools. We hope this new and improved resource will help individuals and systems make sound decisions about what assessment tools and related resources will best meet their program assessment and improvement needs.
