Yen, Flora B.
The purpose of this publication is to highlight the importance of monitoring and documenting alcohol and drug abuse (AOD) program activities. Section 1 of this publication covers basic ideas in evaluating AOD program implementation, various methods of gathering data, and suggestions on selecting instruments. Section 2 contains abstracts of several instruments which have been used by school districts and evaluators to monitor and evaluate program implementation. Eleven of the instruments reviewed and summarized are paper-and-pencil questionnaires, checklists, and interview guides. Three are microcomputer software programs. Two examples of record-keeping forms are also included. All the instruments reviewed have been developed by researchers or practitioners in the last 9 years and have been used in a school setting. Section 3 of this publication lists additional resources such as titles of journals and manuals that furnish more detailed explanations of particular topics as well as names and telephone numbers of resource centers which educators and community representatives may contact to seek additional assistance.
