The National Asthma Control Program (NACP) developed and disseminated an award winning self-study manual: Learning and Growing through Evaluation: State Asthma Program Evaluation Guide, to assist in evaluation planning and capacity building at the state level. The Evaluation Guide provides information that is valuable in constructing and implementing individual state evaluation plans, as well as case studies for each program component area (i.e., surveillance, partnerships, and interventions). The Evaluation Guide serves as a resource and supports the NACP's extensive evaluation training materials, and one-to-one technical assistance. The Evaluation Guide's ready-to-use tools and manuals for grantees have been estimated to have saved approximately $1.2 million in evaluation development costs for state asthma programs.
