The quality of projects and programs should be systematically reviewed. To this end, we recommend the following:
- Projects should be subject to a self-assessment at least once before completion of the project planning; longer projects should be subject to regular self-assessment
- Assessments should initially be carried out individually and then discussed by the team
- The quint-essenz quality criteria list should also be used to assess project proposals, and supplemented as necessary with specific criteria
- Self- and external assessments should be carried out as far as possible and then compared
- Potential areas for improvement should be prioritized and realistic quality objectives and measures formulated
Evaluation grid for funding organizations
Using these criteria you can assess whether and how systematically your institution or any other organization deals with issues of quality in health promotion and prevention projects .The grid may reveal/indicate specific strengths or point to areas with scope for improvement.Evaluation grid (pdf)

Quality criteria list
Criteria are required for a systematic projectand program quality assessment. The criteria that are presented in this document have been developed for intervention projects in health promotion and prevention but can be applied to other projects.Ackermann & Studer (2006) (pdf) Evaluation Profile (projects) (doc.zip) | Ackermann & Studer (2006) (pdf)
- Have you defined when a standard quality assessment will be carried out and for which projects?
- How will the findings of the quality assessments be applied to improving the projects and programs?
