Center TRT Evaluation Materials
Center TRT developed an evaluation logic model and evaluation plan for a program similar to the Farm to Work program reviewed by the Center TRT. 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 a Farm to Work program at increasing access to fresh fruits and vegetables in the work environment. The evaluation addresses the reach, adoption, extent of implementation and effectiveness of a Farm to Work program in changing environments and behaviors related to healthy eating. The evaluation is a pre-post design with no comparison group. This 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 evaluation questions not listed in the evaluation plan, please refer to the list of additional evaluation questions here. We suggest a variety of data collection tools throughout the evaluation plan.
Evaluation Materials Developed by Texas Farm to Work
The Texas Department of State Health Services 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.
The following tools may be downloaded from the Texas Department of State Health Services website:
- Farmer Survey: Farm to Work Toolkit (p. 32)
- Employee Satisfaction & Use Surveys: Farm Work Toolkit (p. 35)
- Feasibility Checklist: Farm to Work Toolkit (p. 19)
