NIOST Survey of Afterschool Youth Outcomes Tool Interactive Online training for Survey of Afterschool Youth Outcomes tool now available
The National Institute on Out-of-School Time (NIOST) at the Wellesley Centers for Women is pleased to announce that interactive online training for the powerful evaluation tool, Survey of Afterschool Youth Outcomes (SAYO), is now available for purchase on NIOST*s website.
“We are so excited to be able to offer this online tutorial, which makes SAYO accessible to afterschool programs across the country,” reports Ellen Gannett, NIOST director. *This is a valuable addition to our array of face to face trainings.*
SAYO measures outcomes in eight areas that research suggests are linked to long-term positive development and academic and life success. SAYO uses brief pre- and post-participation surveys to collect data from day school teachers and afterschool staff in a *menu* approach. APAS, which includes SAYO and the Assessing Afterschool Program Practices Tool (APT), allows users to focus on evaluating specific, observable practices rather than more general quality characteristics.
SAYO surveys are easy to administer and our SAYO training offers step by step instructions that show program staff how to collect data effectively and responsibly, and how to analyze, interpret and use their results for long-term program improvement.
To order the SAYO Online Tutorial, go to www.niost.org/sayo-purchase. For more information about SAYO or APAS or our other trainings, please call 781-283-2547 or visit http://www.niost.org.
For more than 30 years, the National Institute on Out-of-School Time at the Wellesley Centers for Women has been dedicated to moving the afterschool field forward through its research, education and training, consultation, and field-building. Much of NIOST*s work has encompassed projects of national scope and influence, several representing *firsts* for the field and many focusing on building out-of-school
time systems. NIOST is a program of the Wellesley Centers for Women (WCW). Since 1974, scholars at WCW have helped shape a better world through their social science research projects and training programs.
