Schools play critical roles, often in partnership with local health departments and community organizations, in being able to reach significant numbers of youth and parents in communities while also serving as important resources for the community as a whole.Central to this effort has been the development, over the past two years, of an improved matchmaking algorithm. "If you say you want a guy between 30 and 35 in New York who has a master's degree, you're going to get thousands of matches."Codenamed "Synapse", the Match algorithm uses a variety of factors to suggest possible mates.While taking into account a user's stated preferences, such as desired age range, hair colour and body type, it also learns from their actions on the site.The evaluation is a clustered randomized control trial (RCT) design to assess intervention outcomes such as student knowledge and attitudes toward TDV, and behavioral measures (victimization and perpetration).NORC is collecting data through four years of longitudinal middle school student surveys, middle school administrative data on disciplinary incidents and school climate, parent/caregiver surveys, middle school educator and interventionist surveys, program monitoring/attendance/fidelity data, student and implementer focus groups, cost data on program implementation, and community indicator data.
