Title V Delinquency Prevention Program. Community Self-Evaluation Workbook.
Caliber Associates, Fairfax, VA.
This workbook is designed to help communities and program administrators assess the success of their Title V delinquency prevention programs, but it may serve as an evaluation tool for other prevention efforts as well. It provides information and resource aids on program planning, conducting evaluations, tracking programs, describing activities, monitoring risk factor data, performing analyses, and measuring outcomes and performance indicators. The overall evaluation design is a pretest-posttest approach that examines conditions before the initiative is implemented and compares them with conditions after the program has operated. The workbook's first unit, "The Initiative," helps take stock of community mobilization, planning, decision making, and program implementation efforts before the Title V award is received. Unit 2, "Programs and Projects," focuses on the service delivery programs and systems change projects and their processes. "Risk Factor Tracking," unit 3, is designed to help evaluate the impact of the initiative as a whole. An appendix presents risk factor and sample indicators. (Contains 2 figures, 1 chart, and 24 forms.) (SLD)
