In this chapter we examine the program effectiveness of a 20-hour training program of the Project P.A.T.H.S. using subjective outcome evaluation data. Quantitative data were collected from 670 participants attending training workshops conducted in the second year of the extension phase of the P.A.T.H.S. Project. Results showed that the training program was well-received by the respondents. Favorable and positive perceptions were observed for the program, instructors, participants and administrative arrangements. Multiple regression analyses showed that perceived program qualities and instructor predicted overall satisfaction. The paper illustrates the use of several basic statistical techniques in the evaluation context.
