Can Your Cognitive Program Measure a Change in Thinking?
NCTI understands that program fidelity is vital to your organization, and we have developed a new set of tools to help agencies manage and track Crossroads classes. Our new and improved system allows agencies to schedule, update, and report on their Crossroads classes both efficiently and effectively to ensure the fidelity of your programs.
Through the new online pre and post testing system, agencies can determine the increase in knowledge that occurred within each participant upon attending a Crossroads course. As the pre and post tests are written to the goals and outcomes of each curriculum, agencies can use this information to determine the effectiveness of their programs, as well as identify possible issues with facilitation.
Change in Thinking Leads to Change in Behavior
By ensuring that the cognitive curriculum is delivered properly, and participants are increasing their knowledge in important pro-social skills, an agency will be more successful in empowering behavior change. Conversely, if low scores are seen in certain skill areas, agencies are then able to work with their facilitators to improve in those areas.
The Crossroads Pre and Post Test Online System
In the Crossroads pre and post test online system, agencies can see all of their Crossroads class activity on one dashboard, schedule classes, update classes with participant information, print pre and post tests for each class, enter pre and post test results, and immediately view reports for classes, individual participants, or the agency as a whole.
In addition, an agency can choose to have one main administrator who performs all of these functions, or they can allow facilitators to log into the system to schedule classes, print out tests, and enter participant roster information.
