ABSTRACT
The Impaired Driving Assessment (IDA) was developed to collect detailed drinking and driving information over a one-month period. Based on the Timeline Followback assessment, the IDA provides a comprehensive account of impaired driving to identify those at risk for impaired driving, as well as measure the effect of impaired driving prevention programs. Participants consisted of college students who reported drinking and driving at least twice during the previous month on a screening questionnaire. Results demonstrated that impaired driving behaviors reported on the IDA have good test-retest (N = 41) and interrater (N= 40) reliability, with Pearson correlation coefficients ranging from r =. 76 to.96 and r = .73 to .94 respectively.
