  3. Core Measures • Besides reflecting the latest and updated information on substance abuse outcome measurement, these core measures are proven, tested, and user-friendly. Each measure has undergone rigorous study into its psychometric properties. Each measure has been employed successfully in prior evaluations similar to the ones you are undertaking. • The Guidance Document and Core Measures are available at: http://www.activeguidellc.com/cmi/menu_frameset.htm

  8. Guidelines for Collecting Data • Collect as pre- and post-tests • Collect post-test data only from those who completed a pre-test and satisfactorily met requirements for completing the curriculum • Use the measurement instrument in its entirety • Retain the wording and order of items in a measure as they appear • Responses should be anonymous

  9. Guidelines for Collecting Data • Ensure that respondents complete all items on a questionnaire • If a respondent has difficulty understanding an item, other respondents may have the same difficulty • Take pains to explain the meaning of the item to all respondents • When respondents have underdeveloped reading skills, read aloud each measurement item and allow respondents to confidentially record their answer

  10. Guidelines for Collecting Data • Active parental consent is not required for youth who complete the instruments • Data should be reported at the completion of each program or curriculum cycle • Please report the total number of responses for each question • Keep all data locked and under close scrutiny
