Abstract

A total of 236 schools participated in the Project P.A.T.H.S. in the 2010/11 school year. After completion of the Tier 1 Program, subjective outcome evaluation data were collected from 3,275 program implementers. Based on the consolidated findings using schools as units, results showed that participants had positive perceptions of the program, implementers and benefits of the program. More than four-fifths of the implementers regarded the program as helpful to the program participants. Multiple regression analysis revealed that perceived qualities of the program and the program implementers predicted perceived effectiveness of the program. Grade differences were not significant. The present chapter provides additional support for the effectiveness of the Tier 1 Program of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong.
