Data collection and analysis is a vital part of the PAX Heroes implementation. The PAX Up! App has been designed as a tool to streamline this collection and analysis. Use of the app is inextricably woven throughout the implementation process. Trends may be derived from anonymous samples taken from the PAX Up! App for the purposes of evaluation through Ohio Cures. For this reason, teachers and partners receiving training through Ohio Cures agree to use the app in their implementation and consent to this anonymous data collection.
