Development of an Instrument to Evaluate the Knowledge of Elementary Teachers about Venereal Disease.
Schmidt, Norma G.
The purpose of this study was to develop a valid, reliable test to measure the knowledge of elementary school teachers about venereal disease. Recommended scientific test construction procedures were carefully followed. These included the development of a content outline and a table of specification; submitting potential test items to a review panel; revision of items and initial administration of the test; item analysis, revision, and a second administration; and the item analysis and revision which resulted in the "Schmidt VD Knowledge Evaluator." This test consists of 45 multiple-choice items related primarily to syphillis and gonorrhea, with some items related to the other venereal diseases. Test construction procedures assure face validity, and the Kuder-Richardson formula estimates reliability to be 0.79. The instrument would be useful as a pretest and/or posttest for inservice programs, workshops, and seminars for teachers, school nurses, or any similar group. (The "Schmidt VD Knowledge Evaluation" is included.) (Author)
