Annotation: THIS PAPER PRESENTS AN ANALYTICAL FRAMEWORK FOR USE IN EVALUATING INTENSIVE SPECIAL PROBATION (ISP) PROJECTS FOR ADULT PROBATIONERS.
Abstract: THE FRAMEWORK DEVELOPED IN THIS REPORT WAS DERIVED FROM ON-SITE VISIT REPORTS FROM 21 ISP PROJECTS IN VARIOUS CITIES DESCRIBED IN NCJ-40516. A GENERAL ISP FRAMEWORK IS INTRODUCED AND REPRESENTS THE MAJOR ELEMENTS OF THE VISITED ISP PROJECTS. BY LINKING THESE ELEMENTS, THE CHAIN OF ASSUMPTIONS FROM EXPENDITURE OF FUNDS TO ANTICIPATED IMPACT IS DESCRIBED. THESE IMPACTS ARE CONSIDERED FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THEORETICAL PERTINENCE AND MEASURABILITY. A DETAILED CONSIDERATION OF THE PROCESS AND OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS FOR ISP PROJECTS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE TEXT IS PROVIDED. INCLUDED IS AN ANALYSIS OF DEFINITIONAL VARIATION AMONG VARIOUS ISP PROJECT ELEMENTS, TYPICAL MEASUREMENTS CURRENTLY BEING EMPLOYED, POTENTIAL MEASUREMENTS, AND THE IDENTIFICATION OF CRITICAL MEASUREMENT ISSUES. THE FINAL CHAPTER CONSISTS OF RECOMMENDATIONS DERIVED FROM THE FRAMEWORK ANALYSIS. FOR THE OTHER SIX SECTIONS OF THIS PROJECT, SEE NCJ-40511 AND 40513-40517. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT MODIFIED)..MSP
