Abstract

A total of 207 schools (N = 33,693 students) participated in the Secondary 1 Program of Project P.A.T.H.S. in the Full Implementation Phase (2006-07). Participants responded to a Subjective Outcome Evaluation Form (Form A) to assess their views of the program, instructors, and perceived effectiveness after program completion. Utilizing the consolidated reports submitted to the funding body, the Research Team aggregated the consolidated data to form an overall profile of the perceptions of the program participants. Results showed that a high proportion of the respondents had positive perceptions of the program and the instructors, and roughly four-fifths regarded the program as helpful to them. The present study provides additional support for the effectiveness of the Tier 1 Program of Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong.
