Center TRT Evaluation Materials
Center TRT developed an evaluation logic model and evaluation plan for a Farmers' Market Salad Bar such as the one the Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) implemented. The logic model is intended to guide the evaluation process (as opposed to the planning process). This evaluation plan focuses on determining reach, adoption, and the extent of program implementation, as well as the effectiveness of the Farmers' Market Salad Bar Program in addressing targeted outcomes, such as changing the school food environment and student attitudes towards eating fruits and vegetables, both precursors to behavior change. The evaluation is a pre- and post-test 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 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 RUSD
The Riverside United School District Nutrition Services Department and the Center for Food and Justice at Occidental College 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.
