Easy-to-use ONLINE TOOLBOX measures both PROGRAM QUALITY and YOUTH OUTCOMES in afterschool and summer programs!

New Service: The Online Toolbox can be customized to incorporate additional measures for programs and can be part of a tailored program evaluation.

Why are these measures important?

Research shows that high-quality programs have beneficial effects on students socially and academically. The Online Toolbox enables afterschool and summer learning programs to have easy access to measures that can inform program improvement efforts, serve as an accountability tool, and can be used for reporting program outcomes to funders and other stakeholders. All scales have well-established reliability and validity.
