Tiffany, Eckenrode, and Exner-Cortens

The Urban Institute, Child Trends, and Social Solutions selected the Tiffany Eckenrode Program Participation Scale (TEPPS) for dissemination via their collaborative on-line resource site, PerformWell. The TEPPS is a youth program participation measure developed by Jennifer Tiffany, John Eckenrode, Deinera Exner-Cortens and the Complementary Strengths Research Partnership.

PerformWellwas launched by the Urban Institute, Child Trends, and Social Solutions as an on-line source of measurement tools that “human services professionals can use to manage their programs’ day-to-day performance. Information in PerformWell leverages research-based findings that have been synthesized and simplified by experts in the field. [This will help] human services practitioners deliver more effective social programs.” In addition to enabling easy access to assessment tools, the site guides practitioners as they identify appropriate outcomes to measure and as they use data to improve program delivery.

The 20-item TEPPS assesses participation and engagement in programs serving adolescents and includes subscales measuring Personal Development, Voice/Influence, Safety/Support and Community Engagement.
