Evaluation Publications

Sociometrics' evaluation-related publications help practitioners and evaluators design and implement performance measurement systems in their own prevention programs. Our publications cover just about everything you need to know to evaluate your prevention program. And although most evaluation publications on the market today are written for an audience of scientists, this series has been carefully designed to be understandable to decision-makers, service providers, and policymakers.
