Abstract

A total of 358 participants from 52 schools participated in a 3-day training program of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong. At the end of the training program, the participants were invited to respond to a structured subjective outcome evaluation questionnaire with 31 items. The results showed that scale and sub-scales in the questionnaire were internally consistent. The descriptive findings revealed that most of the respondents had positive perception about the training program and the instructors. The respondents also felt that the training promoted their understanding of the project and encouraged them for self-reflection. The quantitative evaluation findings echo the qualitative evaluation findings suggesting that the training program is effective in promoting the participants' knowledge and attitudes about the program and their reflections about their teaching efficacy and skills.
