PREP Nationwide

The PREP national evaluation will document how states design and implement their PREP programs, and the evaluation will measure and report on program performance across all grantees.

Design and Implementation Study

Documentation of states' PREP design decisions and implementation experiences will be based on two rounds of data collection. In summer 2012, the evaluation team conducted a Design Survey. The team reviewed documents that outline state PREP program plans and then conducted telephone interviews with officials from 46 State PREP grantees to learn more about what programming decisions have been made, and why. In winter 2015, the team will begin an Implementation Survey, which will collect information about the approaches that four selected State PREP grantees have taken to ensure that PREP evidence-based program models are implemented with quality and fidelity.

Read the report and its brief based on the Design Survey interviews.

Performance Analysis Study

Performance measures, collected consistently from all PREP grantees beginning in fall 2012, will help ACF understand whether the PREP objectives are being met and whether technical assistance may be needed to support program improvement. The PREP evaluation team will:

  • Develop performance measures that are aligned with items used to assess other federally funded teenage pregnancy prevention programs. The team will also modify the existing measures to reflect the unique features of PREP.
  • Disseminate the processes for collecting data from participants and programs, and explain how states will submit data through an online data collection system.
  • Provide training and technical assistance to states and their sub-awardees on how to fulfill performance reporting requirements, beginning in spring 2012.
