The U. S. Office of Education's National Drug Education Training Program, which began as a limited and terminal one-year effort is assessed. The basic purpose related structure of the information collection and analysis process made it possible to provide information that had multiple uses in management of the program. The fundamental question at which assessment was aimed was: Were the program management strategies employed in the 1970-71 National Drug Education Training Program valid as ways to initiate a coordinated national attack on a critical social problem? Evidence collected in this assessment suggests that the program was not only a success in terms of original expectations of impact, but also in terms of original assumptions of how to bring people together to deal effectively with social problems. A detailed description of forms design, field testing, information collection, and analysis as well as information related to management support provided, is included in Section II of this report.
