Program Evaluation Tools

Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors is an evidence-based curriculum co-created by and for parents. It is essential for us to support the development of high-quality program implementation with locally certified facilitators and partners across diverse communities in the US. The Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors 3rd Edition includes additional tools available to use for the evaluation of your program. This includes a pre-survey and post-survey,  and an online portal for data entry, analysis, and presentation.

Below you will find evaluation tools that will support the continuous evaluation and improvements of the curriculum and program upon completing the AP/OD Acquisition Training Institute.

Pre and Post Surveys

The Pre and Post Surveys are the primary evaluation tools for the program. They are available in Spanish or English. The surveys help analyze the program’s effectiveness that measures the participants’ knowledge gained after participating in Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors. By comparing participants’ answers to the questions before and after participating in the Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors program, we can better understand how much they learned

There are 40 questions about the 10 Sessions that cover 10 key dimensions: 1) Parenting, 2) Early learning, 3) Language and literacy development, 4) Nutrition and physical activity, 5) Socioemotional development, 6) Use of technology, 7) Mathematical development, 8) School readiness, 9) Advocacy, and 10) Confidence. Each dimension (and Session) has 4 multiple-choice or true-false questions.

Completing the Surveys

The Pre Survey is administered by the facilitator before starting the program and the Post Survey is administered after completing the program, quantifying the knowledge gained over the course of the 10-session program. Certified 3rd Edition facilitators have the option to have parents/caregivers complete the Pre and Post surveys using a paper copy or through the Online Survey Portal.

Online Survey Portal

The Online Survey Portal allows parent/caregivers to take the Pre and Post surveys online. Once the program is completed facilitators will have access to a report that provides an analysis of the results.
