The following report describes an evaluation of an online training course called,“Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment” offered by the National Federation of State HighSchool Associations (NFHS). The evaluation began by a request from the Wyoming Departmentof Education (WDE) to evaluate the training course in order to make a decision regarding thefuture use of the course. The course is currently offered to state advisors for the Career TechnicalStudent Organizations in the state.The evaluation began with a discussion among stakeholders regarding the goals of theevaluation and the program objectives. The Wyoming Department of Education wanted to knowif the training course met its own course objectives and if it was relevant and comprehensiveenough for the population they were using it for. After the discussion with the WDE theevaluation specialist began creating data sources to evaluate the training course. The data sourcesincluded a participant survey and an evaluator checklist.The participant survey provided results in favor of the training course. Each of the participants agreed or strongly agreed that they could define the necessary information, provideexamples, and prevent and control inappropriate behaviors, hazing, bullying, and Cyberbullying.This information may be misleading because it is unknown if the participants were consideringtheir prior knowledge or only the information received from the training course. The narrativefeedback from the survey was somewhat underwhelming and lacked convincing information tocontinue using the course or to search for an alternative. The participants identified theinformation as relevant and pertinent to their positions.The evaluation checklist measured the completion of the eight course objectives. Theevaluation specialist critically observed and completed the training course while using thechecklist to assess which objectives were completed. Results showed that all eight courseobjectives were met by the training course.Using the information, the evaluation specialist has answered the Wyoming Departmentof Education’s question regarding if the course meets its own course objectives. The next step isfor the WDE to consider if the information in the training module is relevant enough for their  purposes and population. The results show that the participants can define, provide examples,and feel ready to prevent and control inappropriate behaviors, hazing, bullying, and Cyberbullying. However, the narrative feedback identifies areas that the participants would likemore information, such as “specific state advisor duties”. The evaluation specialist recommendsthat the Wyoming Department of Education continues to use this training module until they canidentify an alternative that more closely aligns with the state advisor duties. This training modulemay not be available currently, and may need to be created in-house by the WDE.
