An Evaluation of the Champaign-Urbana Safety Town Program.
Adesso, Nicholas A.
This paper presents an evaluation of the effects of attending a pre-kindergarten, two-week course in safety education which emphasized safety. A total of 200 preschool subjects evenly divided into a treatment group and control group, were given a 50-item instrument developed from the safety curriculum. The test scores of the two groups were compared to determine significant differences in knowledge of safety practices. Additional comparisons within each group, and by sex, were made. The results of a t-test indicate significant differences between the two groups. No sex differences were found. An item analysis of the test instrument indicates that all but three of the items were adequate discriminators. (CS)
