Evaluating School Violence Programs. Urban Diversity Series.
Flaxman, Erwin, Ed.
The essays in this collection review information, resources, and guidelines on the basic principles of internal evaluations of school violence programs. This information can help staff with program definition, planning, implementation, continuous improvement, and measurement of outcomes. "Introduction" (Erwin Flaxman) examines types of evaluation, the evaluation process, and program evaluation in school and community-based settings and implications for policy. The three essays include: "Challenges to Evaluating School and Community-Based Violence Prevention Programs: A Framework for Action" (Daniel J. Flannery and Megan Seaman); "The Assessment of Conflict Resolution Programs" (Morton Deutsch); and "Evaluating School and Community-Based Violence Prevention Resource Guides: What To Look for, What to Do" (Daniel J. Flannery and Megan Seaman). (Papers contain references.) (SM)
