In the community-based implementation phase of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong, 18,263 students participated in the first tier of the program in 2014. Upon completion of the program, 16,053 participants filled out a subjective outcome evaluation form. Results showed that the participants generally had positive views of the content, instructors and benefits of the program. Consistent with previous findings, different domains of subjective outcome evaluation (content, instructors and benefits) were significantly correlated. Regarding the effect of grades, Secondary 1 students had more favorable perception of the program than did Secondary 2 and Secondary 3 students. Multiple regression analyses showed that both perceived program quality and instructor quality were significant predictors of perceived benefits of the program. The present study basically replicated the findings based on the first year of implementation.
