HHS Report: Risk Factors for College Success - Insights from Adults Career Pathways Programs

This analysis of data from 3,719 students in the Pathways for Advancing Careers and Education (PACE) evaluation highlights risk factors that disadvantaged students face in college success. The data from the the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation indicates a strong relationship between college success and past educational experience; economic status; expected work hours; and expected part-time status. Findings also affirm the role of psycho-social factors—especially determination and confidence—in college success. 

Evalutions with children

Does anyone know of any books, articles or other resources that describe best practices when conducting program evaluations with children?

We are redesigning the way we collect feedback from children (ages 4 -12) who participate in hands-on nutrition classes. Any thoughts or suggested methodology are greatly appreciated.

Health Literacy Leadership Institute

This advanced professional development opportunity looks at improving the health literacy skills of health professionals and consumers at every level. Peer learning is a core component of the Institute’s educational approach. Participants work on an educational project of their choice and receive feedback from instructors highly regarded for their health literacy curriculum development work in medical education and adult literacy, and from each other. The result is a final product that is current, comprehensive, informed by research, and reflective of best practice.
