Evaluation Outcomes

CHIP of Virginia began its evaluation activities after being awarded a W.K. Kellogg Foundation replication grant in 1989. Kellogg’s thought-provoking evaluation questions led CHIP to place an evaluation contract with Lorraine Klerman, Dr.P.H., Professor and Chair, Department of Maternal and Child Health, School of Public Health, University of Alabama at Birmingham. After designing and piloting a comprehensive evaluation program, CHIP sites began collecting data during the summer of 1993. In 1996, responsibility for maintaining and analyzing the CHIP dataset was transferred from UAB to CHIP of Virginia. Since that time, CHIP of Virginia established and has maintained a comprehensive evaluation system designed to track program objectives, performing regular updates in accordance with system needs and new research in the fields of children’s health and family support. The evaluation system includes process and outcomes measures, as well as a biannual parent survey (currently available in English and Spanish).

CHIP’s evaluation forms mirror overall program objectives, i.e. the forms use a variety of indicators to track changes in child health and family stability. Data on families and children are collected at enrollment and at annual intervals thereafter. Daily, CHIP staff members record information about each contact with a family, including the length, location, services provided and contacts made on behalf of the family. Together, these components allow the program to monitor changes in family outcomes over time, in the context of the services provided by CHIP.
