Teen Pregnancy Prevention Replication Study
The TPP Replication Study is an experimental study examining the implementation and impacts of three replications of three different evidence-based program models, for a total of nine sites. Initiated in 2010, the study examines whether program models that were commonly chosen by TPP grantees and widely used in the field can achieve impacts with different populations and settings.
The evidence-based program models included in the evaluation are: Reducing the Risk, ¡Cuídate!, and Safer Sex. The study is conducted by Abt Associates and is managed by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) in partnership with OAH.
The following documents describe the different aspects of the study followed by baseline site profiles. Additional study reports will be added as they become available.
- Teen Pregnancy Prevention Replication Study Overview – study design summary
- Impact Design Report – experimental study design and methods of the impact study
- Implementation Design Report – study methods examining program implementation at each site
Baseline site profiles (by program name)
The Baseline Site Profiles provide summaries of the nine participating grantees. They provide a snapshot of program implementation and characteristics from the baseline participant survey. The profiles highlight demographic information, sexual behavior, and other risky behaviors such as smoking, drinking, and marijuana use for study participants at baseline.
- Reducing the Risk
- Safer Sex
The first release of findings from the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Replication study includes a set of three reports and accompanying research briefs that describe the short-term, interim impacts on adolescent sexual behavior as well as on cognitive and psychological aspects of adolescent functioning that might influence that behavior. There is an evaluation report and research brief for each program model evaluated: ¡Cuídate!, Reducing the Risk, and Safer Sex. A subsequent set of reports will present findings on the implementation of the program models, and a final set of reports will present findings on the longer-term impact of each of the three program models.
