There is an additional post-course, follow-up survey (which mirrors the pre-course survey) that is assigned as a separate learning activity and considered Part 2. EVERFI recommends assigning Part 2 of the course 30-45 days after the learner completes Part 1.

This 30-45 day intersession period allows learners to process the information from the course, start putting their new knowledge and skills into practice, and become more acclimated to their environment. This enables the Part 2 follow-up survey to assess changes in learner attitudes and behaviors, as well as the impact of the school or organization environment.

Automated Assignments can be used to implement an intersession.
