Career Teacher Program Evaluation. Final Report. Volume I: The Career Teacher Program.
CONSAD Research Corp., Pittsburgh, PA.
This first volume of the evaluation of the Career Teacher Program describes the background of the program, the purpose of the evaluation, a description of the evaluation methodology, the results and findings of implementing the methodology, program outcomes, and conclusions and recommendations for the program. The program was designed to improve the training of medical students concerning drug abuse and alcohol abuse by increasing the number and knowledge of academic faculty in medical schools in these areas and by developing regular courses of instruction on these major health problems, and in continuing education programs for doctors. Training grants to qualified degree-granting programs to provide an opportunity to fund medical school faculty members for further training in drug abuse and addiction were authorized by the program. In order to answer evaluation questions and test the hypotheses of the study, a data collection plan involving six different checklist instruments was developed. The activities involved: site visits to career teacher sites and training centers, a telephone survey of "career" teachers, an institutions survey of "noncareer" teachers, a trainee mail survey, and interviews with officials of the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). Conclusions and recommendations are presented concerning the career teacher project grantees (career teachers, sponsors, and institutions); the training centers; and the NIAAA and NIDA. (SW)
