Evaluation Form 3B A report of observations is due every 6 months on February 1 and August 1 of the program year being reported. All information is to be recorded online at http://agweb.okstate.edu/fourh/staff02/core-competencies.htm under the heading “Reports.” District____Central County ____Clover Staff Person Completing the Evaluation_____Sam Green Total Number of Volunteers Reporting on ___25____ Please share success stories. New volunteers were going through the orientation process were very receptive to the guidelines and procedures in place for the protection of our youth. I observed new and veteran volunteers doing programs at the local and county level. Noticeable difference in the level of preparation and the total package presented to the youth. Volunteers were using the experiential learning model and helping the youth to understand the skill they learned and how the skill can be applied to other aspects of their life (life skill).
Evaluation Form 3A Continuing Education and Annual Volunteer Orientation 3 Self Study can be used with/for those parents or volunteers unable to attend training. Displays can easily be created from PPT slides and use of handouts.
Volunteer Evaluation Tools - Forms C, D and E Evaluation of Individual Sections of Core Units - Within each unit of Core materials Extension Educators will find evaluation tools which can be used to assess a volunteers level of comprehension following a P-V training. As an educator, use completed evaluations to assist you in readdressing information which is not fully understood. In situations where educators develop a lesson using materials from more than one section of a particular unit or materials from more than one unit of core, please feel free to develop an evaluation tool composed of questions from multiple evaluation tools. End-of-Year Evaluation - There are two sets of tools for end-of-year evaluation. The content of both formats is identical. The primary difference is that the first tool has been divided, with the first half (form C) being distributed at the beginning of a learning cycle or as someone begins attending training and the second-half (form D) is distributed at the end of the learning cycle. Option 1 - “4-H Volunteer – My Understanding of 4-H Youth Development” (form E) Option 2 - Before and After Evaluation Tools (forms C and D) “4-H Volunteer Beginning-of-Year Level of Understanding of 4-H Youth Development Programs” (form c) “4-H Volunteer End-of-Year Level of Understanding of 4-H Youth Development Programs” (form D) Counties opting to use the Beginning (form C) and End (form D) of year evaluation tools in place of the “4-H Volunteer – My Understanding of 4-H Youth Development” (form E) evaluation can not submit instruments C or D without the other because there is no point for determining a measurable difference.
Volunteer Evaluation ToolsModifying Evaluationto reflect what is being taught annually. Delete the portions of the evaluation not emphasized in your county during any one program year. This will assist you in obtaining a more accurate evaluation.Example on next slide. Recording Volunteer End-of-Year Evaluations • Until notified different (1/2004) – The state office will be recording the “4-H Volunteer” end-of-year evaluations (form E). A summary of the data will be returned to your county. At the end of the program year (July – August), mail the completed evaluations to the state 4-H office by August • Counties using the “Beginning-of-Year” (form C) may mailed the instrument any time during the year or as they are collected.
Highlight the lines addressing information that has not been presented during P-V Training. With the line highlighted select “Table” on the tool bar.

As a result, the heading and line(s) have been removed presenting a tool which will not seek evaluation on a subject not addressed during PV Training. Diagram 1
County Office fills in district and county number before copying and distributing evaluations. Only for purposes of Core Evaluation - Each volunteer will write in the last 4 digits of their drivers license as a Volunteer ID number. County Number is the identification number assigned to your county for 4-H enrollment. Diagram 2
