Knowing whether RIPP Is Working in Your School
- 56 Downloads
This chapter is designed to help individuals implementing the RIPP program determine whether it is producing its desired effects. Although many books conclude with a chapter about evaluation, we placed this chapter closer to the beginning because we believe that it is important to think about evaluation from the very beginning. Too often, evaluation is an afterthought. When this happens, evaluation is likely to be viewed as burdensome, as opposed to something that will improve the entire project. Our hope is that placing this chapter directly after training and before the program descriptions will increase the chance that efforts to prevent youth violence will include a fully integrated evaluative component.
