Tobacco Use Prevention and Education Program Evaluation Report, January-June 2000.
This report describes an evaluation of the Montana Tobacco Use Prevention and Education Program, which helps schools organize and deliver tobacco use prevention and education programs. Its emphasis is on policy and curriculum development in local schools; providing district-level training to develop knowledge, confidence, competency, and skills among teachers so they can provide effective tobacco use prevention education; and assessing current student tobacco use risk behaviors. A key element of the program was a teacher training program to train classroom teachers in disseminating tobacco use prevention information. This report details the methods used to evaluate the program, results of the evaluation process, and recommendations for changes within the training program. Two appendixes include: (1) the results of the pretest/posttest surveys related to knowledge inventory, ability inventory, and prevention education barrier inventory administered to trainers in June 2000; and (2) the results of the Student Use and Perception Survey.
