WSU Cooperative Extension  Life Skills Evaluation System - Measuring growth in life skills for youth and family programs  


  Why Evaluate?

Enter Evaluation System

The Life Skills Evaluation System has been created to assist you in evaluation.

  • Follow the step-by-step instructions on each page to create an evaluation instrument to use directly with program participants.
  • One goal of the Life Skills Evaluation System is to gather county and statewide data focused on life skill outcomes. Use the statements listed in View Life Skills.
  • The Life Skills Evaluation System is linked closely to the Logic Model at University of Wisconsin-Extension (UWEX), a program planning process designed to assist you in evaluating outcomes of your programs.

The outcome indicators listed on this Web site (View Life Skills) have been written to provide useful information and yet be general enough to apply to various Family Living and 4-H Youth Development programs. Therefore, when administering the evaluation you will need to instruct the participants to think about the statements in relation to the program they have just completed. You might say, " Think back on what you have learned in this (name of your program) on (topic of the program). Respond to the statements based on this program."


  • This evaluation system is designed to assess only the selected eight life skills.
  • Programs must have six or more contact hours with the same audience.
  • Program participants must be in 6th grade or above.
  • This system will only accept data from the Life Skills Outcome indicators listed on this Web site. The outcome indicators must be used as written.
  • The permission statement on the evaluation form must remain as written at the top of the page.
  • The evaluation needs to be administered face-to-face at the end of your program.
  • The evaluation can be used only with program participants, not observers of participants such as parents of youth who participated.
