ABSTRACT
The Justice Research and Statistics Association (JRSA) is working with the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Pevention (OJJDP) to enhance juvenile justice evaluation capacity in the States through the Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center (JJEC) project. The goal of the JJEC is to provide training, technical assistance and other resources to the States to help them enhance their capacity to evaluate juvenile justice programs. The JJEC recently launched its Web site www.jrsa.org/jjec. The site was created to assist a variety of people in the juvenile justice field who need information on assessing program effectiveness. Users can find information related to various juvenile justice program areas, including performance measures, evaluation designs, evaluation instruments, and publications. Users will also find juvenile justice resources related to Federal programs and initiatives. In addition, the site contains information for State planners, including State reports, contracts, and other forms that can assist States in sharing evaluation information.
