Program Performance Measures and Evaluations

The 180 Degrees Program offers organizations access to the 180 Degrees Electronic Collection Database System (EDCS) so program outcomes may be collected, stored, and reported.  Details and pricing for this option may be found here.

Data collection and analysis of established program performance measures is an important phase of the 180º Program.  Organizations that opt to track and report performance measure outcome data will be able to easily evaluate program effectiveness throughout the semester/trimester.  Outcome data may be produced mid way and at the end of each semester/trimester and be used to justify program costs and decision-making.

We are also able to modify the EDCS to accommodate local performance metrics if an organization has their own unique performance measures.

Program success is measured by students before and after academic performance (GPA’s), attendance, documented disciplinary incidents; students, teachers, parents and facilitator surveys measuring rate of progress in character development, core values and life skills. An Internet based Electronic Data Collection System is utilized to collect and report on the progress of the students and effectiveness of the program. Additional data is collected concerning student demographics, perceptions, assessments and school processes. On-site visitations at schools, other community sites and facilitator evaluations are regularly performed by management personnel.


The 180 Degrees Program surveys measure the following 10 key Personal Development outcomes of each student before and after the training:

  1. Attitude
  2. Motivation
  3. Achieving Goals
  4. Organizational Skills
  5. Self Control
  6. Decision Making
  7. Communication Skills
  8. Team Work
  9. Leadership Skills
  10. Citizenship

“Before this school year, life and the world around me was hell in reality. I had bad grades, in school I constantly got kicked out, and I was definitely not caring about school at all. I was known as the “bad kid” people thought I had no life ahead of me.” “What made this class different was how we were able to show our emotions, talk about serious things and get respected.” “Overall, because of being part of the 180 Degrees Program, when I think about my future I think there is a huge life out there ahead of me and I will make it above the top.” - Cristina
