Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test - Consumption scale (AUDIT-C scale) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
AUDIT-C is a scale that is a composite of three items - frequency of alcohol use, drinks per drinking day, and frequency of 5+ drinking occasions. Scores ranges from 0 to 12 with higher scores indicating more severe alcohol problems.

Web-based Personalized Feedback for University Students
Randomized Controlled Trial of a Brief Personalized Feedback Intervention in University Students

Excessive alcohol consumption in university students continues for be a serious public health concern with a variety of negative consequences. There have been a number of different brief interventions developed to address this issue among university students. The current project will add to this literature by evaluating the use of a personalized feedback intervention (www.CheckYourDrinkingU.net; CYDU). Specifically, this trial will examine whether providing access to the CYDU will result in short-term reductions in drinking. This issue is important as use of these interventions is not a mandatory requirement for university students so the issue is whether making materials of this type available leads to any reductions in risky drinking. It is hypothesized that students provided access to the CYDU will display greater reductions in drinking at a six-week follow-up as compared to students who were not provided access to the CYDU.

Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Risky Alcohol Consumption
Behavioral: Check Your Drinking University version
The CYDU is an internet-based intervention that provides a personalized feedback summary which compares the participant's drinking to that of other university students. The CYDU is a modified version of the Check Your Drinking screener which has been validated in four separate randomized controlled trials. The primary modification of the CYDU is that the population norms used for comparison are those of university students (in the USA or Canada).
