  • Decker (2008) notes that an assessment is a five-step process that includes:

1. Determine whether the plan was implemented (a process evaluation).

2. Collect pre- and post-response qualitative and quantitative data because a response that does not change the level of gang crime could hardly be called successful.

Assessment (continued)

3. Determine whether broad goals and specific objectives were reached by comparing the baseline of information developed before the response was implemented with the results of the program.

4. Identify new strategies needed to augment the original plan.

5. Conduct an ongoing assessment to ensure continued effectiveness. The program is not a one-time exercise.
