Abstract: This survey is being conducted as a part of an evaluation of OJJDPs JJRRI Demonstration Program. In 2012, OJJDP commissioned a 36-month evaluation of the Juvenile Justice Reform and Reinvestment Initiative (JJRRI) Demonstration Program. The JJRRI Demonstration Program provides funds to three states and/or local administering agencies for juvenile justice to develop and implement an integrated set of evidence-based and cost-measurement tools that will enable them to make informed decisions about resources and services for juvenile-justice involved youth.
The Urban Institute (UI) is conducting a comprehensive evaluation of JJRRI to determine whether the initiative has had the intended effect of improving program- and cost-effectiveness. As part of this evaluation, UI will conduct two web-based surveys with key stakeholders at each site to measure changes in attitudes towards evidence-based practices as a result of the JJRRI Demonstration Program.
The main objective of this web-based survey is to measure juvenile justice stakeholder—agency leadership and staff—support for use and knowledge of Evidence-Based Practice's in the three sites selected to be JJRRI Demonstration Programs. Two surveys will be conducted by UI to measure stakeholder support and knowledge of evidence-based practices. The first survey will assess baseline attitudes of EBPs. The second survey will measure the extent to which context and attitudes change through the initiative.
(5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond/reply: It is estimated that 480 respondents will complete a 20 minute questionnaire.
(6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: Approximately 160 hours.
