The DE-USE System Project
Market potential exists for a low cost turnkey survey system to evaluate substance abuse among 7th - 12th grade students. Many school districts conduct periodic student surveys to assess the use of drugs, the impact of prevention proggrams, and directions for future programming. Administators have indicated problems with these surveys; highcost, long delays in obtaining results, and difficulty in understaning and applying findings. Creative action plans to develop and market DE-USE (tm) (Drug Education/Use Survey and Evaluation) System, composed of survey forms web-based data reporting and a technical manual for a school to conduct a survey and obtain results. The product will overcome the limitations cited by administrators. It will compare a school's results to federally established national norms. In Phase I, research and development will be conducted to test technical feasibility and produce a prototypical instruction manual, survey forms, analytical software and a website for administrators to output results. Phase II will continue technical feasibility testing and will refine prototypes for final product design for phase III, commercialization.
