In an evaluation of a mass drug education program involving over 1,000 students, a mental health funding body in southwestern Ohio learned a number of lessons which should prove useful to anyone engaging in, or planning to engage in, evaluations of drug education programs. Problems such as instrument selection, logistical constraints and data analysis are discussed. Suggestions are given as to how the present study could have been improved and recommendations for future evaluations are made.
