#10 TEST YOUR PROGRAM!
To achieve the best possible results and to safeguards potential public support, successful school- and sport sector cooperation programs must be evaluated and should be able to proof their impact.
Relevance – Why is this requirement important?

Evaluation helps to improve the intervention and to legitimate the funding. Publication of evaluation reports/research helps sport coordinators worldwide to develop better programs.
 

Challenges – What are the typical challenges related to this requirement?

Due to wishes of policy makers and politicians, most projects have short term life cycles and therefore it is hard to have solid effects and/or have time to do an evaluation. As effects on children development are influenced by a lot of factors it is hard to proof the impact of school-sport sector cooperation.

 

Strategies – What are potential measures or strategies you might consider to (better) fulfil this requirement?

The main strategy is to build commitment at the politician level to receive funding for projects and evaluation for a longer time period. Use an evaluation model i.e. output, outcome and impact, to make clear what the different project's effects are on different levels. Evaluate and publish on effects and on perceptions of the stakeholders and general public to get sustainable support. Furthermore, ensure that the evaluation concept fits to the project and is developed due to the principle: As much as necessary, as little as possible.
