Abstract

Knowledge of college student drinking is based on self-reports of standard drinks, yet research suggests students are often unable to accurately identify or pour standard alcohol servings. This presentation provides an overview of the free-pour assessment methodology, which incorporates free-poured drinks or photographs of typical drink vessels to objectively measure alcohol consumption. Implications of the free-pour assessment for alcohol education courses and brief interventions to reduce college students' problematic alcohol consumption and its associated consequences will be discussed.
