Distribution of CSAP
scores and classification of proficiency appear in Figure 1.
From the Colorado Department of Education (CDE), we obtained school-by-school staffing data that included counts of librarians and library assistants, both those endorsed and those not endorsed by CDE, and CSAP
Under the terms of the SPF SIG awards, states were required to develop strategic plans and submit them to CSAP
for review and approval (step three of five steps).
SPF-SIG program acknowledged that complex interventions may exhibit certain characteristics that make them difficult to evaluate and measure:
The change comes following an 18-month process with ratification at a June AGM of the CSAP
program teaches: Safety Awareness & Ways to Avoid Attacks, How to Carry and Properly Deploy Pepper Spray, Verbal Commands and Presence, Training Drills & Defense Against Simulated Attacks with Inert Practice Sprays, Post Deployment Advice, and Simple Self-Defense Techniques.
The Substance Abuse and HIV/AIDS Prevention Initiative competitively funded 48 sites in 2002 as 3-year cooperative agreements, geographically located nationwide; 34 of these sites agreed through data-sharing agreements with CSAP
to participate in a standardized data collection and submission protocol that used common process, dosage, and outcome instruments in order to evaluate their local prevention interventions.
If an elementary class is engaged in an integrated, inquiry-based science unit, achievement in science will increase and achievement in reading will increase as measured by District Level Tests and CSAP
I give [CMHS Director] Kathryn Power much credit on the federal action agenda and [former CSAP
Director] Beverly Watts Davis on the Strategic Prevention Framework, as well as other people throughout SAMHSA.
Frequencies and percentages were calculated for each survey question to determine the extent of CSAP
Minority students performed significantly better than average in every measure of the CSAP
