Abstract: The National Institute of Justice (NIJ), in collaboration with the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), National Drug Court Institute (NDCI), and the National Center for State Courts (NCSC), developed this DVD to educate drug court teams, researchers, and others about important program assessment issues and resources. The DVD presents information on performance measurement, process evaluation, outcome evaluation, impact evaluation, and cost efficiency in separate modules. These files may also be downloaded from NIJ’s website on Drug Court Performance Measures and Program Evaluation at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/nij/topics/courts/drug-courts/measures-evaluation.htm. Publications corresponding to this DVD include: NDCI’s Local Drug Court Research: Navigating Performance Measures and Process Evaluations (http://www.ndci.org/sites/default/files/ndci/Mono6.LocalResearch.pdf) and NCSC’s Performance Measurement of Drug Courts: the State of the Art (http://contentdm.ncsconline.org/cgi-bin/showfile.exe?CISOROOT=/spcts&CISOPTR=171). BJA’s Drug Court Discretionary Grant Program website provides information on funding, training, and technical assistance at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/BJA/grant/drugcourts.html.
