Abstract

In this chapter, the views of the program implementers on the Tier 1 Program, program implementers, and program effectiveness were examined in the 10-h and 20-h programs. Based on the Subjective Outcome Evaluation Form for Instructors (Form B), results showed that program implementers generally had positive views of the program, implementer qualities, and program effectiveness, with the 20-h program associated with relatively higher subjective outcome evaluation scores than did the 10-h program in terms of perceptions of the program quality and effectiveness. Multiple regression analyses showed that perceived program quality and implementers predicted perceived program benefits. Reliability analysis showed that Form B was internally consistent. Confirmatory factor analyses also revealed that the scale assesses three hypothesized dimensions, including perceived program quality, perceived implementer quality, and perceived effectiveness of the program.
