Center TRT Evaluation Materials
Center TRT developed an evaluation logic model and evaluation plan for a program similar to Healthy Vending program implemented in Iowa, which was 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, including reach, adoption, acceptability, and feasibility, and effectiveness of a Healthy Vending program at increasing access/ availability to and ultimately consumption of healthier vending items. 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 Iowa
The Iowa Department of Health created 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.
