National Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center Web Tutorial

This tutorial provides instruction on the basics of performance measurement, evaluation, and evidence-based practices, including how to identify objectives and develop a logic model. Similar resources are available on the NJJEC Skill Building web page.

NJJEC Bulletin

The NJJEC Bulletin is produced every other month by JRSA's National Juvenile Justice Evaluation Center. The Bulletin includes information about conferences and trainings, new resources available to the field, an evaluation feature, and highlights of state and local efforts in juvenile justice.

Infobase of State Activities and Research (ISAR)

JRSA's Infobase of State Activities and Research (ISAR) is a comprehensive electronic clearinghouse of information on State Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) activities and research. The database can be searched by key word, state, and/or date. For reports published after 2004, visit the SAC Publication Digest, where report summaries are available for searching.

Incident-Based Reporting Resource Center (IBRRC)

JRSA's Incident-Based Reporting Resource Center (IBRRC)provides comprehensive information on accessing and using incident-based reporting data for the analysis of crime and reporting of justice statistics. The Center, which is supported by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, seeks to put practical analytical information and tools into the hands of analysts who want to work with incident-based data, and to provide a forum where analysts can exchange information and ideas about using IBR data.
