Evaluation Measures Resources
This list is intended to help providers of dementia-related services identify appropriate and well-researched measures in support of their program evaluation plans. Choosing existing measures saves time and lends credibility to evaluation findings. The use of standard measures also allows for greater comparability of results between projects.

The list includes validated measures that assess outcomes of importance to dementia-related programs, including Alzheimer’s Disease Supportive Services Program (ADSSP) and Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative - Specialized Supportive Services (ADI-SSS) grant projects. It is not intended as a complete list of all measures or as an endorsement of any particular measure. Most measures on the list are available at no cost, are brief, and do not require extensive staff training.

Also: Assessment: assessments, evaluation, outcome, measure, quality
