Measure Youth Outcomes Online (YOB 2.0)

Staff in front of campers

The basic format of the Youth Outcomes Battery (YOB-Basic) is available online. These measures assess how much youth (10-17 years old) increased on 11 youth development outcomes, allow you to collect data electronically, and automatically produce statistical reports to help you understand your results. This online system:

  • Can be set up for quick, easy administration from iPads/tablets if an internet connection is available (eliminates manual data entry)
  • Offers easy online manual data entry if outcomes are gathered by paper surveys
  • Generates automatic statistical reports and charts
  • Produces unlimited customizable surveys based on your camp's needs
  • Is simple for youth to complete (each of the scales generally has 5 to 13 questions)
  • Includes preset demographics: gender, age, race/ethnicity, years at your camp, session length, and enjoyment.
  • Offers up to 10 additional customizable variables on each survey (cabin, session, unit, etc.)

Statistical Note: This basic format offers measures of perceived change (increase) from participation in the camp experience. Each of these instruments produced high reliability coefficients (a > .90), and internal and cross-structure analysis support the position that valid inferences about increases in camper skills may be made from these instruments.
