Select a topic from Crimesolutions.gov website (https://www.crimesolutions.gov/). Select a subcategory. Select one program from your topic that had no effect (RED = ineffective) and one program which was effective (GREEN = effective). Download the two pages and the original articles of the studies. For Each Study Answer the Following Questions: -What type of program was it?
-Who was the target population?
-Identify the dependent and independent variables
-Identify the methodology used to collect data
-Discuss the limitations of the studies
-What are the strengths and weaknesses of the program?
-What barriers were there to implementing the program?
-Which variables impacted the effectiveness of the intervention/program?
In comparing the two programs:
– What is the effectiveness of RED Compared to the GREEN programs?
– For the RED study, what would you do different?
– For the GREEN study what would you do differently?
– Why did one program fail (RED) and why did one program succeed (GREEN)?
