Evaluation Questions

IDPH is seeking assistance from educators to measure the effectiveness and reach of the program. Five survey questions have been developed to measure students' understanding of the material before the education is provided and students' understanding after the education. Data can be entered through the following Program Evaluation link. Educators will also be asked how many students were educated, grade of the educated students, location of the education, and feedback on the training. The data collected through this process will be used to help sustain the program and identify priorities for ongoing program implementation.
