The Impact of Drug Education and Prevention Programs. Disparity between Impressionistic and Empirical Assessments.
Gilham, Steven A.; Lucas, Wayne L.; Sivewright, David
Evaluation Review, v21 n5 p589-613 Oct 1997
Discrepancies between staff perceptions of program efficacy and empirical evaluations of program effectiveness were studied for two drug education and prevention programs. Possible explanations involve: (1) the relatively low drug involvement of the study population; (2) differing expectations about program impacts; and (3) the sensitivity of empirical measures to changes that reflect program impact.
