2 Putting the APNA to Work for You The Arkansas Prevention Needs Assessment  Workshop Objectives Explain the risk and protective factors approach to prevention Discuss the validity and reliability of the APNA survey instrument Describe the benefits of the APNA data to schools, communities, and the state Identify the location of APNA reports online Use local reports to find and prioritize local data, for future application Create a flyer to showcase local data Describe a plan for sharing APNA data with stakeholders Today’s Goals  Overview of APNA survey - history, questionnaire items, benefits to schools, communities, state  APNA survey results - where to find them online  APNA survey results - how they are organized in the district-level and building-level reports  Templates for use with APNA results - alcohol, marijuana, others to be created; how to find data for use with templates; how to insert local data into templates  Other ways to use/share APNA data

3 APNA History  Uses the Communities That Care Student Survey developed by Hawkins & Catalano  Measures Risk and Protective Factors  Seven State Norm during  Random Sample of 200,000 students  CO, IL, KS, ME, OR, UT, & WA  AR Piloted the Survey in 1998 &

4 APNA in Arkansas  Initial Implementation of APNA  Implemented annually (2008 was 6 th Year)  6 th Graders in 2002 were the Seniors in Fall 2008  28 Districts have participated every year  Trend data tracking their 2009 graduating class’ developmental process  Available to all public school districts  ADAP Supported--No cost to districts 4 Validity  Built-in checks assure validity of the data  Honesty  Fake Drug  Inconsistent Responses  Extreme Use  Inappropriate grade levels  Surveys w/ inappropriate responses are removed prior to data analysis

5 Goal: Full Participation  Census based approach (vs random sample) - With FULL participation by a district  Reliability of data results is limited by the quality of the implementation  All students  All four grades  All buildings housing those grades  Less than full participation can skew data results 5 Recent APNA Questionnaires  Note about 2006 results and comparability  Possible dips/spikes in 2006 data reports  2006 subcontractor used different syntax for some of the social indicators  New questions added to 2007 for evaluation purposes  New questions added to 2008 – Prescription drugs

6 APNA Benefits  Gathers information needed for planning, reporting, evaluation, & grant applications  Provides unique data for NCLB reporting  Annual participation provides trend data  By grade -By class -By gender -By building  Allows efforts to be tailored to specific needs  Class/Grade level  Individual building level  District & Community levels 6 What are Risk and Protective Factors?  Risk factors are those conditions or situations that increase the likelihood that a child will develop one or more behavior problems in adolescence.  Protective factors are the conditions or situations which decrease the likelihood of future behavior problems.  Risk and protective factors are found in four domains - community, school, family, and the peer/individual

7 All of the major behavioral problems in adolescence are known to be related to risk and protective factors. 7 Example of how a risk factor is measured: Low Commitment to School  How often do you feel that the school work you are assigned is meaningful and important?  How interesting are most of your courses to you?  How important do you think the things you are learning in school are going to be for your later life?  Now, thinking back over the past year in school, how often did you … enjoy being in school? … hate being in school? …try to do your best work in school?  During the LAST FOUR WEEKS how many whole days of school have you missed because you skipped or “cut”?

8 The Level of Risk & Students’ Grades 8 The Level of Protection & Students’ Grades

9 Where to Find APNA Results  Hard copy (from district APNA contact)  Online:  For district and building reports, password is needed Note: Password is case-sensitive  Password will remain the same for future results  District data typically available in Spring after Fall implementation  2008 results available now 9
