APAS Online Training
Do you want to know if the children and youth in your afterschool program are reaching academic or social outcomes?
Do you want to know if classroom teachers believe the youth attending your program are making academic progress, successfully completing homework, and building other skills and behaviors needed for engagement in school?
Do you want to know if youth believe they are benefiting from your program and are feeling confident about their skills and future plans?
Our NIOST APAS Online Tutorials are a reasonably-priced way to learn how to use and gain access to the free SAYO and APT tools. NIOST offers three online tutorials:
- SAYO-S & T (staff & teacher surveys) for programs interested in measuring Intermediary Outcomes and/or Academic Progress.
- SAYO-Y (youth survey) for programs interested in youth perspectives on program experiences, their sense of competence or their future expectations.
- APT (observation and questionnaire tool) for programs interested in measuring quality program practices.
The APAS online tutorials are ideal for:
- Single sites starting the process of data collection for program improvement and measuring outcomes
- Multi-sites who want to compare data across a group of programs (multi-site discounts available)
- Those unable to attend NIOST’s in-person Summer Seminar APAS/SAYO Training**
With your APAS online tutorial purchase you receive the following:
- Clear, step-by-step instructions on how to use and customize the APAS tools for your program
- Unlimited 1-year access to the purchased APAS Tutorial for staff at your site.
Upon completion of the tutorial you receive free access to the APAS tools associated with the training module purchased. Tools are available for printing and placing into Survey Monkey*.
* A paid professional Survey Monkey Account at the Select Level or higher is required.
The Survey of Academic and Youth Outcomes for Staff and Teachers (SAYO S and SAYO T) Tutorial, the Survey of Academic and Youth Outcomes for Youth (SAYO-Y) and the Assessment of Program Practices Tool (APT) are part of the Afterschool Program Assessment System (APAS).
