Start Strong: Building Healthy Teen Relationships, Evaluation Summary

General Material

The Start Strong evaluation consisted of two parts: an outcome evaluation and a policy evaluation. The overall purpose of the evaluation was to assess the overall impact of Start Strong by looking at: the effectiveness of the program among students and teachers; and the adoption, implementation, and sustainability of TDV prevention policy efforts in Start Strong sites. The baseline findings of the student outcome evaluation were released in March 2011 in a report called Middle School Matters.

This evaluation offers new information on the dating behaviors and attitudes of middle school students and outcome findings to inform TDV prevention efforts.
