In order to evaluate the implementation quality of the Tier 1 Program of the Project P.A.T.H.S. (Secondary 1 to Secondary 3), a study based on classroom observations of 597 units in 207 schools was conducted under the co-walker scheme. Results demonstrated that the implementation quality of the program was high in general, with a mean program adherence of 80.8%. The 13 aspects of program delivery under observation were significantly inter-correlated. Multiple regression analyses indicated that: a) overall implementation quality was significantly predicted by classroom control, interactive delivery method, use of positive and supportive feedback, opportunity for reflection, degree of achievement of the objectives, time management, and lesson preparation; b) success of implementation was significantly predicted by student participation and involvement, opportunity for reflection, degree of achievement of the objectives, and time management.
