A Supplement to Understanding Evaluation: The Way to Better Prevention Programs. A College Case Study.
This case study was developed as a supplement to the U. S. Department of Education publication Understanding Evaluation: The Way to Better Prevention Programs. Its purpose is to help readers get a feel for what is involved in setting up an evaluation of a college alcohol and other drug (AOD) prevention program. Although Understanding Evaluation specifically addresses prevention work in secondary schools and presents a case example of the fictional Wood County School District to illustrate the evaluation process, the principles of evaluation discussed are applicable to schools at any level, including the college or university campus. The fictional Woodson College case study is a composite of the evaluation experiences of a number of colleges and universities woven together to help readers tailor the information in Understanding Evaluation to meet their own campus needs, In the case example, administrators at Woodson College instruct the director of prevention services to develop an evaluation plan for the Woodson's three AOD prevention programs. One program is a curriculum infusion project, the second is a social norms media campaign, and the third is a peer education project. Discusses and evaluates each of the three projects. Provides a partial list of publications and fact sheets/prevention updates available from the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention. (Author/MKA)
