Abstract: Study Objectives: Based on the data collected in the extension phase of the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong, this study examined the views of 9,765 program implementers on the universal curricula-based program (ie, Tier 1 Program). Design: After the Tier 1 Program was completed, workers responded to a client satisfaction scale (Form B). Utilizing the data supplied by the participating schools, the profiles and correlates of client satisfaction data were examined. Results: Program attributes, implementer attributes, and benefits of the program were viewed positively by the program implementers, with high proportion of the instructors perceiving the program contributing to the development of the students. Small grade differences on client satisfaction levels were found. Regarding predictors of perceived program effectiveness, perceived program and instructor attributes predicted perceived effectiveness of the program. Conclusion: Consistent with the data collected from the students, the present findings suggest that the Tier 1 Program was well-received by the major stakeholders, particularly with respect to its ability to promote positive development in Chinese junior high school students. The present finding replicated the previous observation that perceived program and implementer qualities were significant determinants of perceived program effectiveness.
