Program Evaluation

UC's Evidence-Based Correctional Program Checklist

The Evidence Based Correctional Program Checklist (CPC) is a tool developed for assessing correctional intervention programs, and is used to ascertain how closely correctional programs meet known principles of effective intervention. Several recent studies conducted by the University of Cincinnati on both adult and juvenile programs were used to develop and validate the indicators on the CPC.  These studies found strong correlations with outcome between both domain areas and individual items (Holsinger, 1999; Lowenkamp and Latessa, 2003, Lowenkamp, 2003; Lowenkamp & Latessa, 2005a; Lowenkamp and Latessa, 2005b). We have also conducted over 400 program assessments across the country and have developed a large database on correctional intervention programs.

In addition to providing the CPC assessment, UCCI can train your staff to administer the CPC within the parameter of your agency.

CPC Assessment Overview.

"The CPC trainers were so knowledgeable in what they were teaching.  This made it easy to follow along and grasp each area.  It was great to have the opportunity to apply what we learned on site with the trainers help."

CPC – Group Assessment (CPC-GA)

The CPC-GA is a program evaultion tool created by UCCI. It is very silimar the the CPC, but the CPC-GA is designed for use on a stand-alone treatment group or outpatient treatment group versus a larger treatment program. It contains a smaller number of indicators that the original CPC.

CPC – Community Supervision (CPC-CSA)

The CPC-CSA is a program evaluation created by UCCI for use with probation and parole departments. The indicators are taken from the CPC as well as available meta-analyses on community supervision. The CPC-CSA measures the ability to deliver evidence-based supervision and treatment services and adherence to RNR, but in two different contexts - examining this at the probation/parole agency level and at the referral agency level.

The CPC-DC is a program evalution tool created by UCCI for use with drug courts and other specialty courts. The indicators are taken from the CPC as well as available meta-analyses on drug courts. It measures the ability to deliver evidence-based services and adherence to RNR, but in two different contexts - examining this at the drug court level and at the referral agency level.
