About Teen Assessment Project Reports

The Teen Assessment Project (TAP) is a multifaceted, community-based research and education program designed to help youth by helping parents, schools, youth-serving agencies and community leaders better support youth development. It uses confidential surveys to “tap in” to local teens’ behavior and concerns. TAP originated at the University of Wisconsin at Madison under the direction of Stephen A. Small, Ph.D.

The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension adopted TAP for use in New Hampshire communities; first used in Carroll County in 1993. The survey included 160 items, ranging from drugs and alcohol, to sexuality, to family relations. The object of the survey was to provide a “baseline of information” necessary to address problem areas. Results were used to educate the public, secure local funding for special projects, stimulate policy and program changes and encourage positive changes in attitudes and behaviors.

This collection contains the reports of the TAP survey results from the New Hampshire School Districts between May 1993 and June 2003. The booklet with the original survey question is included with most of the reports. There is also a copy of the Teen Assessment Project Management Notebook.
