Evaluation/Reporting System (ERS4)

An Evaluation Tool of the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP)

The Evaluation/Reporting System (ERS) was developed to capture the positive effects of the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). Based on feedback from users, the software was also designed to enhance its usefulness for measuring the impact of other nutrition education programs. The system provides a variety of reports that are useful for management purposes, provides diagnostic assessments of participant needs, and exports summary data for state and national assessment of the program's impact. The specifications for this system were originally developed by a committee made up of representatives from across the United States.

The Evaluation/Reporting System consists of separate software sub-systems for the unit, state, and federal levels. They are denoted as follows: ERS unit (county) level subsystem, SRS state-level subsystem, FRS federal-level subsystem.
