Routine course evaluation within the nationwide physical activity
promotion programme Allez Hop was introduced to monitor and
optimise the programme. A semiautomated web-based system
was developed to collect, store, analyse and disseminate data.
The system was pilot-tested in the canton of Aargau in 2006 with
strong encouragement of course instructors to participate in the
evaluation. It was also openly available to Allez Hop instructors
from mid-2007 until the end of 2008 with no specific measures to
encourage participation. Feasibility was good in both settings. 65%
of courses participated during the pilot phase and 1% of courses
during the open phase, indicating that encouragement of course
instructors is needed to increase participation in the evaluation.
