Center TRT Evaluation Materials
Center TRT developed an evaluation logic model and suggested evaluation plan for statewide school nutrition standards such as those West Virginia passed. The logic model is intended to guide the evaluation process (as opposed to the planning process). The evaluation plan focuses on the implementation and effectiveness of the school nutrition standards in changing the school food environment. The evaluation plan addresses the reach, implementation, and acceptability and effectiveness of statewide school nutrition standards on short term outcomes regarding availability of healthy foods. This evaluation is a pre-post design with no control group. The evaluation plan provides guidance on evaluation questions and types and sources of data for both process and outcome evaluation. If you are interested in answering questions not listed in the evaluation plan, please refer to the list of additional evaluation questions here. Links for some of West Virginia’s data collection tools are available in the Intervention Materials section of the West Virginia template on the Center TRT website and are linked where applicable.
Evaluation Materials Developed by West Virginia
The West Virginia Department of Education, Office of Child Nutrition evaluators created several materials for its evaluation that are also available for your use. Some of these tools have been incorporated into the evaluation plan that Center TRT developed. Please note that Center TRT has not reviewed these tools.
