GDHR Impact Evaluation now published

February 20, 2017


An independent Impact Evaluation of WA Department of Health’s Curriculum Support website for Teachers: GDHR (Growing & Developing Healthy Relationships) was undertaken by John Scougall Consulting Services in 2016 with the support of an expert cross-agency reference group.

The impact evaluation had two objectives: to assess how well the GDHR online curriculum resource is working; and to identify how it might be strengthened.

John utilised multiple information sources and methodologies to inform the study, collect data and reach the findings; a literature review of best practice, a desktop analysis of relevant documents/reports, an on-line survey of teachers and educators who use the website, a series of qualitative interviews with a selected group of website users, and a program logic workshop and two intensive case studies.

The final Impact Evaluation Report, Executive Summary and seven supporting documents are now available and can be viewed the on-line publications on the GDHR site.

An Implementation Plan is currently being prepared to respond to the eleven key recommendations, with some of these measures having already commenced.
