How to Add Custom Data

Some program areas require custom data to be logged. If you don’t see a "Custom Data” section, it isn’t required.

To Add Custom Data

  1. Go to the "Program Activities" page (Track / Program Activities) and click the program activity you wish to add custom data to.
  2. Click the "Custom Data" section located in the progress bar (it will be between "Program Activity Information" and "Demographics" if your program area asks for this data). 
  3. Fill out the provided form. If you have questions about what data to provide, please contact the PFT leaders for that program area.
  4. Click "Save" to finalize the entry or "Save and continue" to navigate to the "Demographics" section. 

You may edit the custom data by clicking "Custom Data" in the progress bar.  

Priority Indicators: The Evaluation Framework contains 51 indicators of standardized, evidence-based methods to evaluate and share outcomes with stakeholders (e.g., clients, partner organizations, funders, policy holders, etc.). States are strongly encouraged to measure four core indicators (MT1, MT2, MT3, and MT5), at least one or both of the partnership indicators (ST7 and/or ST8), and populations results indicator, R2. No state is expected to measure all 51 indicators. Instead, states are to identify "priority indicators" aligned with the goals/objectives specified in the state's SNAP-Ed proposal. Select the priority indicator(s) you are addressing with this program activity.

Target audiences: Select the group of individuals this program activity is designed to affect. In other words, to whom is the program activity's content and messaging targeted towards?

Setting: The Evaluation Framework defines a setting as the type of site where the intervention takes place. While interventions may take place in more than one setting, we would like for you to select the primary setting in which this particular program activity is taking place.

Primary Curriculum: This is a list of your state's SNAP-Ed approved curriculum. The content and messaging of an intervention should ideally be aligned with one or more of these curricula. Select the curriculum on which this program activity is primarily based.

Additional Curricula: Occasionally, more than one curriculum is used to create the content and messaging for an intervention. Which, if any, additional SNAP-Ed approved curricula were used to develop the content and messaging for this program activity?

Objectives: This is a list of goals/objectives as specified in the state's SNAP-Ed proposal. Interventions should be designed to affect one or more of these goals/objectives. Select the objectives with which this program activity is most closely aligned.

Intervention Topics: The EARS form lists 18 potential topics on which an intervention may be focused. Select the intervention topic(s) covered by this program activity.

Food Demonstration: The form will ask you if this activity included a food demonstration. If you select "Yes", a text box will appear for you to list the recipes used in the demonstration. Note that this is meant to track food consumed through demonstrations, including beverages. You should always follow any state or implementing agency specific guidance regarding this field, however.
