Colorado 4-H Program Evaluation   arrow

4-H Common Measures Logo

Goals and Benefits

The goals of Common Measures are to:

  • Identify a common core of youth outcomes and indicators which can be used to improve programs
  • Provide a process for assessment and report from a national data base
  • Provide state 4‑H programs with resources to assist them in the planning of local, state-wide and regional evaluations

Benefits to the 4‑H community include:

  • Improved ability to write impact statements for federal, state and county reports
  • Ability to describe the impact of 4‑H consistently and simply
  • User-friendly, readily accessible tools
  • Ability to easily measure a broad range of programs

Program Surveys

Please note that the following tools are approved for use with Colorado 4‑H youth programs only. 4‑H staff and volunteers are encouraged to use the instruments to evaluate the impacts of your local programs to make data-driven programming decisions and report program impacts to local stakeholders.

General 4-H Program Surveys

These surveys are currently under review. Once finalized and approved, notice will be sent to agents via 4hprograms.
