Evaluation is the systematic collection and analysis of information about program activities, characteristics, and outcomes to reduce uncertainty, improve effectiveness, and make decisions.  Evaluation isn't about acquiring knowledge for the sake of knowledge.  It's more practical.  It's about utility.  It helps states and communities become more skillful and exact in describing what they plan to do, monitor what they are doing, and improve.  Evaluation results can and should be used to determine what efforts should be sustained and to assist in sustainability planning efforts.  Ultimately, good evaluation will help improve not only our own programs, but those implemented by others.

This course is designed to provide basic knowledge regarding the sale of tobacco products to minors to tobacco retailers in the state of Michigan.  We know that tobacco is the number one preventable cause of death and disease in Michigan, and that the majority of smokers start before they are 18 years old.  We also know that the earlier a person starts using tobacco, the harder it is to quit.  For these reasons, the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) continues to focus its attention on the prevention of tobacco sales to minors.
