Accountability in Drug Education: A Model for Evaluation.
Abrams, L. Annette, Ed.; And Others
This text is the first in a series of handbook providing methodology information for drug program planners and administrators. This handbook is designed to address the private sector need for assistance in their consideration of methods, techniques and approaches necessary for effective local program implementation and evaluation. The first section of the handbook describes program objectives, goal setting considerations, pitfalls in data collection, and research designs considered appropriate for the evaluation of drug education programs. The second section presents a number of reliable measures for program evaluation, an orientation for the effective use of the sample instruments, and information for locating additional measures. Drug education measures for use with young children, adolescents, college students and adults are included or described. The third and final section deals with the analysis and interpretation of data, and includes discussions on student evaluation results, the use of computers and the dimensions of program planning.
