Observation Protocols and Tools

To ensure quality delivery, it is important for CAPP and PREP Health Educator Supervisors to observe educators facilitating evidence-based program (EBP) sessions in real settings. It is just as important to provide educators with concrete, constructive feedback within the context of professional development goals.

Important tip: Review the CAPP and PREP Observation Protocol carefully when planning your observations. A protocol for virtual implementation is also provided below.

ACT for Youth Observation

ACT for Youth staff observe program delivery at least once during the five-year grant period for CAPP providers, and every year for PREP providers. ACT for Youth uses the Facilitator Observation Form.

Agency Internal Observation

CAPP and PREP Health Educator Supervisors observe each educator at least twice each year. Agencies have a choice of using either the Facilitator Observation Form or the On-Site Feedback Form. (Forms do not need to be submitted to ACT for Youth.)

Virtual EBP Observation

Because many cycles are now delivered online, we have developed a protocol and form for observation of virtual facilitation.

After the Observation: Facilitation Improvement

This planning tool should be used in collaboration with the educator. It provides a process and examples for transferring observed behavior issues into professional development goals and action steps.
